The Importance of Reading to Your Baby

Class Description

A child who loves to read doesn’t just appear like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

It’s our job as caregivers to take center stage and help build a love and passion for reading from infancy.

Learning to read to children requires a little more than low-level energy, an ability to make fun of oneself, and a longing desire to understand what accents are appropriate for different storybook characters.

Join Jamie to learn about five aspects that you should take into consideration when reading to your little one.
