A mother or father reading a children’s book while cuddling their infant can trigger an early love of reading in the child. The Northeast Pennsylvania Reading Association’s “Babies and Books” program recently presented a collection of books to a grateful staff at Wayne Memorial Hospital’s New Beginnings Birthing Suites. The books will be given to parents of babies born in the unit. The selection included “Guess how Much I Love You” and “This is Not My Hat.” To make the program happen, the Reading Association partnered with First Book, which provides children with an opportunity to read and own their first new book.
