Program Description

Event Details

There are 5 simple steps you can do with your child to create early literacy and learning success. Join us as we explore ways to incorporate more TALK into your everyday life. Asking questions and talking with your child helps them learn new words and prepares them for reading.

Iowa State University Extension will be here to talk about their Small Talk program. Small Talk is a virtual program that parents with children under the age of 30 months can take and learn how to improve your children’s early language skills. 


Accompanying Adults
