Young & Restless

This class is designed for one-on-one interactions between caregivers and children birth to 24 months. Babies learn to associate books with fun and shared moments with their favorite adults. One-year-olds love to wander and listen while they explore, and caregivers can help them participate while on the move. Short books are paired with songs and rhymes that are modeled to introduce pre-literacy skills. See all upcoming storytimes »
