Library Story Time
My son is 15.5 months old and one of the first places we visited in our community was the library. That's right, at 2 months old, my son and I made the library a weekly visit! Well, I absolutely LOVE books and I want him to love them too. In fact, one of his first words is book!
The library has so many programs and resources that I try to take advantage of many of them. We try to go to a weekly library story time for my son's specific age level. I find this so helpful for many reasons: ideas for books, songs, listening, and social interaction. We also take time to check out books and play in the children's section.
I also like to pick up free articles and magazines. I have found some great (sometimes FREE) activities that I attend with my son. Here's just one free activity that I have been able to enjoy with my son attributed to the library. Last week we picked up a free pass to the local Children's Museum. We invited a little friend to come with us and we took the free link light rail to the museum downtown. How fun is that!Also, I have picked up several book lists of recommended books to read to babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. I not only pick out my own books, but I try to read as many from the list too. This gives me some good guidelines.
So many fun ways to learn and grow through the library!
