Starting with Sounds

Practice reading with the help of local and national artists, athletes, and more!

In collaboration with Tennessee PBS, the state’s six PBS stations, the Tennessee Department of Education created “Starting with Sounds” to highlight the importance of early literacy and how families and students can practice reading by listening to national and local musicians, athletes, and champions of student success read their favorite books and sing songs to help build these critical skills.

    Starting with Sounds is a local public television program presented by NPT.
