Raising Readers in Story County

Importance of Books

Books enrich the lives of babies, toddlers, and preschoolers throughout their critical first five years.

Brain development and overall well-being (intellectual, emotional, social, physical development) are enhanced by a stimulating environment that includes caring adults and plenty of good quality books and interesting experiences.

Adults can learn how to share books effectively with babies and toddlers in order to make the most of the read-aloud time spent together each day.

There are many excellent books available, in cardboard, cloth or fabric versions, which will delight young children and their parents
