Cuddle and Read Together

It's never too early to begin sharing books and stories.

Good books for babies have:

  • thick or cardboard pages
  • a size small enough to handle
  • large pictures and bright colors
  • real faces and everyday objects
  • just a few words
  • rhymes and songs

Please ask a librarian for help in locating books and music to share with your baby.
