What is the Books R 4 Babies 2 Program?
This program is about introducing parents and caregivers to the importance of spending time reading and playing literacy based games with very young children.
The 'Books R4 Babies 2' Program involves parents/caregivers sitting with their child (usually 0-2 years of age) in their lap, in a group session, sharing board books, rhymes, finger plays and making noise! Each adult has a folder with copies of the books and resources used within the session. There is a special folder for the facilitator which also has a CD with popular nursery rhymes included. Each session usually lasts twenty minutes to half an hour.
