Continuing with my Activities with Babies series, another one is Baby Time at the library.
It’s a free program, once a week for 30 minutes; it continues for about 5 weeks, it is free – but you need to pre-register. Space is limited.
In essence, it is very similar to Ontario Early Yeats Centres, which I already talked about before. Moms with babies ages 0-18 months came together to get entertained with songs, nursery rhymes – and, of course, books. Which you can then check out, if you want!
If you haven’t done so yet, it’s a good way to start your baby getting used to – and, hopefully, fall in love with – books. They also share some CDs with songs and nursery rhymes that you can check out, too.
You can open a separate library card for your baby, from birth. There are limitations as to how many books you can check out at the same time, so having a separate card might help. Timothy and I check out board books frequently – MUCH cheaper than buying books!
And, from what I know, there are such baby library groups around the world; so even if you are not in Toronto, inquire about those! It’s yet another good reason to get out of the house with the baby – and a good entertainment for the baby.
Go to Toronto Public Library’s website and search for Baby Time program in your local library!
