Reading to children from the time they are born has a positive effect on the development of language and vocabulary, as well as providing the pre-literacy skills that are essential in learning to read when a child begins school. The Rhyme Time (suitable for 0-2 years) and Toddler Time (suitable for 12 months - 2.5 years) programs are designed to encourage parents and children to enjoy the benefits of reading together.
Songs, rhymes, finger plays and stories are shared in a group environment. Library staff can also assist you in finding resources to suit your needs, such as board books for babies, nursery rhyme books and parenting resources. No registration is required for this free event.
