Sing with Me

The State Library’s literacy program, Better Beginnings, has been successfully catering to babies and pre-schoolers for several years. Now, two year olds will be able to join in the fun with their own specially created Sing With Me pack. City of Rockingham Libraries are excited to offer the new bags that focus on sharing well-known nursery rhymes to develop an early love of literacy.

Each pack comes in a bright orange backpack and includes a Sing With Me booklet, a music CD, fridge magnets, and ‘Knick Knack Bushwack’, a beautiful book by Mandy Foot. Made possible with the support of Rio Tinto, the program promotes the key message that parents are their children’s first teacher, and encourages parents and carers to read and sing to their children every day.
