We’re having a program just for babies and toddlers from 6-24 months old, along with their parents and caregivers, starting in May at the Sierra Madre Public Library.
The new Baby Rhyme Time starts May 5th at 10 a.m. and runs every Tuesday, through July 29th. Sessions last 30 minutes and are divided into 3 separate parts: Lap Time, Reading Together, and Free Play. There is no pre-registration for this free program. The next session starts October 7, 2014.
Lap Time: A librarian will lead rhymes, reading, playing, and songs while demonstrating ideas for finger play and movement. Parents and caregivers join in with their babies.
Reading Together: The babies & and toddlers will choose from a variety of board books to share with parent or caregiver. Don’t forget to check some out for later! Bring home the rhyme and song sheet too, for more fun at home.
Free play: This gives babies a way to feel comfortable with each other and a new environment. After 8 to 10 minutes, parents and caregivers help the librarian and the babies put the toys away and sing a closing song.
The Sierra Madre Public Library is a Family Place Library, dedicated to service to families with babies and preschool children.
