Guardian Express - - NEWS -

Start de­vel­op­ing your child’s lit­er­acy skills by tak­ing them to weekly Baby Rhymetime or Preschool Sto­ry­time ses­sion at City li­braries. Kar­rinyup Li­brary holds Baby Rhymetime on Wed­nes­days at 10.30am and Preschool Sto­ry­time on Thurs­days at 10.30am. All six Stir­ling li­braries of­fer these free ses­sions on var­i­ous week­days.

In ad­di­tion, all City li­braries host Songs & Sto­ries ses­sions on Satur­days from 10.00am for par­ents un­able to visit their lo­cal li­brary on week­days. Satur­day Songs & Sto­ries is great for chil­dren up to five years of age.

Baby Rhymetime and Sto­ry­time ses­sions are run in con­junc­tion with the Bet­ter Be­gin­nings (BB) lit­er­acy pro­gram. In the pro­gram, child health nurses dis­trib­ute BB bags to ev­ery child born in WA. The bags con­tain a book for young­sters and in­for­ma­tion for par­ents about the ben­e­fits of read­ing to chil­dren.
