Books for Babies
Reading with your baby is important, right from the start!
Research has shown that reading with your child from birth has a positive impact on infants’ language development, emphasizes the bond between parent and child, and sets a foundation for later reading success.
The McBride Library works with Northern Health to create a Books for Babies bag, which the Public Health nurse delivers to each newborn and their parents. The bag includes free books, a CD, and information about healthy childhood development. Funding for the books and CD comes from the North Central Library Federation.
