- Read to your baby everyday. Visit the library for a variety of board books available for babies and young toddlers.
- Visit the West Bloomfield Township Public Library website and search for 60 Best Books for Babies. These interactive books allow baby and caregiver to learn new songs, fingerplays, as well as create a bonding experience over reading.
- While reading a book, use different voices. The voices will help your baby learn tone of voice while reading but also draw them to the book and written word. You can also use different tones while singing songs. The itsy bitsy spider is a great song to try; then do the great big spider with a deeper, louder voice and the teeny, tiny spider with a high quiet voice.
