Inspiring A Love Of Reading ~ By Terry Callahan

Children of all ages enjoy books. Laura Powell, Senior Youth Services Librarian at the Talbot County Free Library, Easton, says, “I’ve seen babies grow into toddlers able to follow along with every finger rhyme, whether or not they can speak it yet. It’s always the right time to introduce children to books! Babies and toddlers love to have a story read to them. When a child has a person read a book to him or her, they are all in! The child may help turn the pages, anticipate what happens next, repeat the ending rhyming words, and watch eagerly as the story comes to a wonderful conclusion. It’s a page-turning adventure. Their minds are growing with imagination, empathy, language tools and vocabulary and they feel included and a sense of belonging, whether they are enjoying the story with one parent or caregiver, or in a group and all are enjoying the book together.” Story Time engages children with stories and books on a regular basis. The children’s section has a wide selection of books for its readers, including a large collection of board books perfect for babies and toddlers.
