By the time children from low-income families reach the age of four, they will have heard thirty million fewer words than their more advantaged peers. Babies Need Words Every Day: Talk, Read, Sing, Play is a national, public awareness initiative created to help bridge the Thirty Million Word Gap. Developed by the Association of Library Service to Children (ALSC) this campaign has begun with a series of accessible, instructive posters to help inform parents and primary caregivers about the vital importance of talking with their babies.
