It's Never Too Soon to Read to Your Baby! Jul 29, 2013

Babies love to be read to and your library has lots of board books that are perfect for babies to explore. Touching, holding and hearing books are the first steps that help babies to become familiar and comfortable with reading. Reading aloud:

  • Teaches a baby about communication
  • Introduces concepts such as numbers, letters, colors, and shapes in a fun way
  • Builds listening, memory, and vocabulary skills
  • Gives babies information about the world around them

Believe it or not, by the time babies reach their first birthday they will have learned all the sounds needed to speak their native language. The more stories you read aloud, the more words your child will be exposed to and the better he or she will be able to talk and read.
