Playing with your toddler is more than fun, it’s one of the most important ways you can encourage early literacy and language development. .

At these special Toddler Time programs, we’ll show you how to let your child take the lead in playful learning activities.

Read, Play, Grow! is a program of BPL’s First Five Years initiative and is supported by generous funding from the Altman Foundation, the New York City Council and New York State Library’s Family Literacy Library Services grant program.  Additional funding is provided by the Brooklyn Eagles, a group of young and engaged supporters of Brooklyn Public Library.
