Baby Storytime, 0-12 months, Friday, March 18

During Baby Storytime I shared a statistic from the American Academy of Pediatrics.  “The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends parents start reading aloud at birth.  Only 15% report heeding the advice.”  This lead to a great conversation about finding good times during your day to read to your baby.  Some people find reading at bedtime works well for them.  Other people find that cuddling together after waking up from a nap is a great transition.  Be creative and find a time or two in your day to regularly read to your baby.  This habit of daily reading will serve you and your baby well in the future.

Today we read a favorite book of mine, that is so sweet and enjoyable.  Start reading today and come to the library to borrow a copy of it!
