My baby girl Stephanie is 8 weeks old but I am thinking about books for babies and early baby’s brain development already. I was checking American Library Association web site for some information about children’s books and found absolutely great project.
The project is absolutely free of cost. All you need is computer with internet, printer with paper and big happy smile.
The idea of this project is reading, learning and playing with kids everyday by using printed colorful posters with poems, songs and games. By placing these posters in highly visible areas you will boost children’s language acquisition and brain development.
There is a top points of project:
• Babies Need Words Every Day: Talk, Read, Sing, Play is a public-awareness campaign designed to help primary caregivers understand the importance of high-quality communication with their children.
• The campaign’s core resources are beautifully designed posters that deliver simple, effective rhymes, games, and other suggestions for immediate, enriching ways to communicate with babies.
• These posters are available as a free, easily reproducible download from ALSC’s website, along with suggestions for placing the posters above changing tables and other high visibility locations.
• In addition to these public-awareness posters, ALSC has also created culturally diverse book lists to support young children’s acquisition of language and basic concepts.
