Talk to your babies...it makes a difference!

A recent New York Times article references a study which focuses not only on how much language a child is exposed to before the age of 3, but the quality of the language exchanges.  Check out the full article in the link below.

Visiting the library during your child's early language development can help you give them not only some extra quantity of language exposure, but quality as well.  Sit and read a story aloud, play with puzzles and talk about the pictures together, attend baby or story times where your child can not only interact with you, but with other children and our staff.
