# 16 Once upon a time...

Yesterday, Little Princess and her mother went to Story Time at our local library for the very first time.  As she is not quite five months old, some of you might ask....why??  Even very young babies enjoy the action songs and nursery rhymes they learn with their mothers in the library. They listen and absorb language as they're read simple board books. They're learning that books and reading are valued.

"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents."
― Emilie Buchwald
How true! 
Reading with your baby is such an important first step on the road to literacy.  

TOMORROW....some of my favourite board books for little ones
