February 24 Storytime at Walkertown
When do you and your little one look at books together? After meals? Before naptime? Before bed? When do you chant rhymes or sing favorite songs? In the car? On a walk? Waiting in line out in public somewhere?
These questions beg a bigger one--When are babies, toddlers, and preschoolers learning? You guessed it: every waking minute. A University of Florida study published in 2014 revealed that, not surprisingly, babies in utero respond to rhymes, having heard them repeatedly from their mother's voice.

Interactive library programs such as Storytime and Music & Movement are designed to do more than just entertain. Your children gain social skills along with literacy as they continue the journey of learning begun many months ago. Join us to enjoy African folktales for Black History Month on Feb. 24.
