We got an extra treat during our vacation. My mom is a former elementary teacher who LOVED and still loves literacy. I always thought that she would own a bookstore one day, but she found an even better way to be around books. She is THE Children’s Librarian at Basalt Regional Library.
She works hard creating GREAT programming like bringing the circus and a magician for summer reading. She even does science experiments! Just hearing about it makes me want to read.
We got the prilvedge of attending her storytime while we were in town. She typically doesn’t do the baby storytime but she made an exception for a special guest. It was awesome!
Noah is starting to like peek-a-boo so imagine how much he enjoyed the story Peekaboo Bedtime.
Grandma even let him ring bells during a song!
(We won’t talk about what happened during patty cake)
I was extremely proud to be the daughter of the fantastic storyteller among MANY other things. I know that Noah had a great time and can’t wait until he gets to go again.
He got to play in the toy box and he was paying close attention to this sitting business.
I am fairly certain he left a lasting impression with his cuteness.
First Step in Speech Development
Since Noah was born, my mom continually asks if we are reading to Noah. Of course we are mom!! I had a great example.
The first step you can do for speech development in any child is read to them. You can get the whole family involved. I often tell families to have their school-age children read to the younger ones. This way both benefit.
And who doesn’t love a bedtime story? This will help kids hear how to use words as well as build their vocabulary and imagination.
Extra Time with Grandpa
Noah got to hang out with his grandpa and dad in the afternoon while his mom and grandma went shopping (our favorite past time).
Do you have any good child storybook recommendations? Also, do you attend storytime at your local library / bookstore with your little ones?
