The Birth of a Book Habit


Babies brains grow rapidly. Reading to babies right from birth stimulates their mind, develops language skills and lays a foundation for later reading success. Babies grow into children who love to read when they experience the warmth and pleasure of cuddling with parents and listening to nursery rhymes and stories. Reading early and often to babies helps develop skills that lead to a lifetime of reading enjoyment. Babies and books belong together, so read to your baby every day!
