Books for Babies

The Friends of the Roxbury Library invite you to participate in the Books for Babies program. Books for Babies introduce parents of newborns with the important role they play in their child’s literacy development. Parents can start their babies on the path to success in reading and learning by regularly reading to newborns.   Studies show that babies who enjoy early and frequent experiences with books start kindergarten well ahead of those who have lacked such experiences. The packet features baby’s first board book, and library card.  There are a number of brochures giving parents ideas to encourage their children to become readers including: “Babies Love Books” a guide for grown-ups, “Read to Me” with tips on reading to children and “Raising a Reader, Raising a Writer” – a booklet from the National Association for the Education of Young Children.  Drop in Tuesday, December 1st at 10:30 for the next Books for Babies program and pickup your packet.
