Yes! Babies read books!

Well, technically you read the books to the babies... but that is how they learn! There are many wonderful books for babies, and Rebecca O'Connell, one of our librarians (and a published author of a particularly great book for babies!) has four to tell you about in her video. Her book and some of the other she talks about are on the Beginning with Books Center for Early Literacy's list of Best Books for Babies.

Below are the books that Rebecca talks about. Come to the library and check them out!

Jiggle Joggle Jee by Laura Richards

I Kissed the Baby! by Mary Murphy

Only You by Robin Cruise

The Baby Goes Beep by Rebecca O'Connell

Rebecca will also be one of the featured speakers at the 12th Annual Children's Literature Conference at the University of Pittsburgh, Greensburg on Friday, May 2, 2008.
