Babies & Preschoolers

baby reading with her motherIt’s never too early to support your child’s early literacy! Mouthing books as a baby, and later wanting books to be read over and over again will lead to the ability to point out letters, to rhyme, and to retell stories. These are some of the important skills children will need when they learn to read in school.

Our “100 Books” list has great suggestions for books to share with your child before they start school. They’re all available at our library, so start today and read them all!
