Story Time Starter: Holidays for Babies

Today’s Story Time Starter is for our youngest patrons!  Baby Story Time is a time where we encourage active participation while we share rhymes, songs, lap games, music, interactive activities and books.   The program helps develop language skills and is a great way to meet other new parents.

With the holidays fast approaching here are a few fun board book suggestions for our little ones!

 My Baby Loves Christmas by Jabari Asim
 Don’t Shake the Present by Bill Cotter
 Llama Llama Jingle Bells by Anna Dewdney
 Duck and Goose It’s Time for Christmas  by Tad Hills
 Cocoa’s Cranky Christmas by Beth Hughes
Where is Baby’s Christmas Present?  by Karen Katz
