Why Read Aloud to Your Baby?

Reading aloud to babies exposes them to more words than they hear in conversation. Machines at Work by Byron Barton contains unusual words such as rubble and cement. It’s okay if babies don’t understand all the words they hear.  They are still learning about language while they listen.

We Love to Sing Along!

The Library has many songs that have been made into books. Singing the words as you read along with your baby is a good way to keep his/her attention.

Read to Me

 Make reading fun by engaging your child in the story by reading lift-the-flap books, singing as you read, or talking to your baby about things they see in the pictures.  It’s more important that reading to your child is enjoyable rather than long. Follow your child’s mood.

Tech Time Totes

The Library now has Tech Time Totes available to check out. Each contains books, a technology toy, and activities for your child. There are also all kinds of tips for adults on ways to model technology for children.
