About Zero to Three website
Neuroscientists have documented that our earliest days, weeks and months of life are a period of unparalleled growth when trillions of brain cell connections are made. Research and clinical experience also demonstrate that health and development are directly influenced by the quality of care and experiences a child has with his parents and other adults.
That is why at ZERO TO THREE our mission is to ensure that all babies and toddlers have a strong start in life.
We know that as babies, the way we are held, talked to and cared for teaches us about who we are and how we are valued. This profoundly shapes who we will become.
Early experiences set a course for a lifelong process of discovery about ourselves and the world around us. Simply put, early experiences matter. We encourage you to learn more about very young children, early development and the work of ZERO TO THREE by exploring our site.
We Give Books
From its inception on April 20, 2010, We Give Books has made it possible for individuals who love reading to share books with others, simply by reading a great children’s book themselves.
In the process, we’ve had the great fortune to work with some of the world’s best literacy organizations, non-profits that include, for example, Room to Read, Jumpstart for Young Children, United Through Reading, and the Harlem Children’s Zone.
As We Give Books becomes part of First Book, please find a few of our brightest moments:
