Some time was spent during baby storytime today talking about the importance of starting to read to your babies right away. Reading to babies offers many benefits for growth and development and can be really fun too! Reading aloud to your baby stimulates developing senses which prove beneficial later on as your child learns to talk, read and write. Reading together also provides wonderful one on one time between you and your baby. Your baby gets to be close to you and hear your voice – two really wonderful things for a little one!
Today we read a book with baby faces and talked about making your own book at home with familiar faces, such as using pictures of relatives and friends. Babies love to look at faces. If you make a “Face Book,” feel free to bring it in to show the group.
