The Talk It Up campaign was designed to take advantage of spots where people might pause in order to create opportunities for learning and engaging with children. These places included grocery stores (pictured here), laundromats, barbershops, and corner stores. Signage prompted conversation about the relevant surroundings. Stylistic variations are due to multiple rounds of implementation, with each round responding to user feedback. This was a partnership effort between Read by 4th and Smith Playground, funded by the William Penn Foundation. See WHYY news coverage here.
