You Tell Me Stories Library App

Parents are their child’s first teacher, and research shows that “the most effective way of reading aloud is when children are actively involved, asking and answering questions, and making predictions rather than passively listening” (D. Dickinson).

You TELL Me Stories, a non-profit literacy organization, provides parents and teachers with the resources to help children in this critical learning period of birth to 7 years to develop the listening, pre-reading, and comprehension skills they need to be successful, before that critical window closes.

You TELL Me Stories has been recognized by the Bammy Awards, Academics Choice, Creative Child Magazine, Tallywig Toy Awards, and the Mom’s Choice Awards for its innovative methods and dedication to inspiring education while promoting literacy and giving parents the skills to read aloud interactively with their children.
