FLIP is a one of-a-kind multilingual interactive learning program designed for early learners, ages 0-8, by a team of education professionals at the Children's Museum of Houston. In partnership with the Houston Public Library (HPL) and the University of Texas Children's Learning Institute, the Children's Museum of Houston's FLIP program helps develop early learners' reading and comprehension skills through family-centered activities in the home.
More than 2,000 FLIP kits are available to be checked out at 35 Houston-area library branches, including the Museum's Parent Resource Library. There are 201 different FLIP kits available, grouped by age appropriateness.
This unique national program was first developed and implemented in Houston. It is made possible in part by a $1 million dollar National Leadership grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the generous support of: The Hamill Foundation, The Samuels Foundation, Ed Rachal Foundation, and William J. Hill.
