Does your child have a favorite book they want read over and over again? Or worse, wants YOU to read over and over again? You've probably memorized every word and by now you could throw the book out the window!
Recently, the Children's department was asked to compile a list of great books for babies for a local service group. Not toddlers or preschoolers, but great fit books for babies This got us thinking about all of the great reasons why we read to babies long before they are able to read with us or understand the plot of a book.
This program has been cancelled. Please call the Children's Desk with questions. Simple wooden blocks. Not complicated. Nothing to plug in. Not trendy. But did you know that playing with blocks helps children develop skills that later will help them learn math and science, build vocabulary and exercise their dexterity?
