Did you know that babies begin to recognize voices even before they are born? That means it is never too early to start reading to your baby. This group is very organic; it can be whatever you need it to be. If there is anything you would like to talk about or read up on, we can research it in the library. Join us and make this group your own! (We meet once a month, see the library website for more details)
