Reading to babies introduces them to letters, colours, numbers, and shapes. Babies love looking at the pictures and enjoy listening to the rhythm of the storyteller's voice.
Studies show that babies who are read to develop bigger vocabularies and better cognitive skills.
Reading together strengthens the bond between baby and reader.
Parents and carers can enjoy knee bouncing, finger rhymes and nursery rhymes with babies along to nursery rhymes including:
- Incy Wincy Spider
- If You’re Happy and You Know It
- I’m a Little Teapot
- Two Little Dicky Birds
A changing area is available.
