FLIP! Story Time Videos Starting at $25.00

Studies have shown children who are exposed to more words while they are young, find a stronger connection to learning as they continue to grow.  This exposure happens through adults engaging with them and reading to them on a regular basis. Help support the creation of story time videos.  Stories read to children by a diverse group of adults from all walks of life.
