Books & Babies focuses on the development of pre-literacy skills as well as babies’ physical, social, and cognitive growth. It also provides a nurturing environment for caregivers and babies to bond and learn together. This storytime encourages a love of books, song, movement, rhythm, and rhyme. This program is for babies up to 24 months old, with a parent or caregiver, and lasts 25-30 minutes. Following the program, babies can expand their motor, sensory and social skills during free play time, which also provides caregivers the opportunity to socialize and meet people in the community.
