Waiting for Baby
A partnership project of:
Family Reading Partnership
The Ann Halpern Book Fund
Area Obstetricians and Midwives
Families expecting a baby receive the children’s book Read to Me by Judi Moreillon and a bookmark emphasizing the importance of establishing read aloud traditions at home, beginning before birth and continuing after the baby is born.
To invite expectant parents to read aloud to their baby now, in order to build a routine they can continue throughout infancy and childhood.
To share information about early literacy development with families, before they are overwhelmed with a newborn!
To start a home library of children’s books.
Read to Me is a board book that will grow with your baby. The rhyming text will engage an infant with its sing-song quality and carries the important message for parents that reading to your child is a way to love your child. As the baby grows to a toddler, he or she will come to understand the story in the book and appreciate all the babies, children, and grown-ups portrayed by artist Kyra Teis. We offer both a bilingual Spanish/English and English option for families.
