Babies need Books! Reading aloud to babies stimulates their developing senses, teaches them about communication and introduces them to the concepts that will be the basis for language and reading development down the road. In this presentation we will share some innovative ways to encourage parents to read with their babies both within the walls of the library and through community partnerships. We will look at 1,000 books before kindergarten programs, literacy kits created especially for babies that can be checked out through your library, community partnerships that will encourage reading and get books into the hands of babies and caregivers, and more!
