In April, the Family Conservancy’s Talk, Read, Play initiative partnered with the United Community Services of Johnson County and Johnson County Government to engage resident to create healthy interactions with young children. Some Johnson County Libraries — Blue Valley, Corinth, Central Resource and Lackman —participated in a book drive for books suitable for children up to age five. The book drive ends Wednesday, May 11.
The Family Conservancy’s “Talk, Read, Play” early childhood educational campaign uses neuroscience studies about brain development in young children and simplifies it to a message every parent and caregiver can use to help support a child’s early development: Talk, Read, Play with your child every day.
