DP Public Library to introduce lap sit story time Wednesday

Written by InsideDP.com staff. Posted in Community

DP Public Library 750

It is never too early to start reading with children! Early literacy does not necessarily mean adults are teaching babies to read; instead it is creating positive interactions between infants, their caregivers, and print.

The Deer Park Public Library will be providing a new Infant Lapsit Storytime for ages 0-2 years old starting Aug. 31, on Wednesdays at 10:15 am. During these 30-40 minute sessions we will have fun with songs, nursery rhymes, socialization opportunities, and more.

From the moment they are born, humans begin learning about the world around them. Every day babies begin to develop their language and literacy skills though interactions with parents and caregivers. Playing, singing, sharing stories, and babbling to each other are all key components of introducing literacy. Early literacy skills can be thought of as “pre-reading” or what children may know about reading and writing before they can actually read. Children initially learn about language by listening to others talk, singing songs, and doing fingerplays together. This allows them to hear new vocabulary and gain knowledge. By giving babies the opportunity to see and play with books in a positive environment adults help them develop a love of reading and books.

There is no registration or admission fee required and the library welcome all infants and caregivers. The library is located at 3009 Center St. Call 281-478-7208 for more information.
