Herding up the recent news so you don’t miss out on all the goods:
Our friends at ZERO TO THREE launched their #StateOfBabies Yearbook, which provides, for the first time, a comprehensive look at national and state-by-state data on the well-being of infants and toddlers. Normally, we find these kinds of tools overwhelming–where does one even begin?!– but #StateOfBabies is presented with clarity and depth. Be sure also to glance through the #StateOfBabies hashtag on Twitter, where some gems from the launch event can be found.
Great question from the #StateofBabies audience: people are more likely to government complain about a mailbox being moved than child care needs. How do we engage families? https://t.co/KTAvaBYDsn
