"We want kids to be technologically literate, but we also need them to understand the value of personal connections," says Kate. "Little Bridges products prompt the kinds of conversations that help kids thrive. And the opportunity to pass along a little family history gives kids a sense of self and adults a sense of purpose."
-Kate Jerome

"Reading opens many doors for children, but conversations give them the courage to go through them."
