The babies are waiting to be bounced, tickled, and read to. Learn how the sound of your voice, the rhythm of a song, holding a book and babbling all get your baby ready to read.

Talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing are the key skills and fun ways to help your child get ready to read! Developing early literacy skills makes it easier for children to read once they begin school, and helps foster a lifelong love of reading and learning!

Drop in to one of our Every Child Ready to Read storytimes, or a Shake, Rattle & Roll, Musical Families, or Musical Babies storytime offered in partnership with the Bowmanville EarlyON Child and Family Centre. Please note that the room capacity for all Early ON programs is 40.
