Free Literacy Resources from the Children’s Museum of Manhattan!
All The Way To K and Beyond!
These literacy resources for families and professionals were created by the Children’s Museum of Manhattan in partnership with the New York City Department of Education and the Administration of Children’s Services, a national advisory board and with research from Johns Hopkins University Science of Learning. CMOM received funding from W.K Kellogg Foundation and the Meringoff Family Foundation for the project which included: arts-based workshops, professional development and festivals for families and childcare providers at the Museum and throughout the city, a dedicated website, resources and a national dissemination network.

Through the ATWTK grant we have reached over 1,400 parents, children and childcare providers who have responded with great enthusiasm and some surprise as they learn that by having daily conversations with children they are helping them build language and literacy skills. As one mother from the South Bronx noted “So this was right in front of me all along! I’m not a great reader, but I do love to talk with my son and share stories about our family!” Below are pictures from our recent Museum family festival.
