Babies need books – all kinds, including One Lone Swallow and Scruffle-Nut

Years ago I bought a second hand copy of Dorothy Butler’s, ‘Babies Need Books’ – How to share the joy of reading with your child. It’s a wonderful book, but you don’t need any special qualifications to share books with your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews or the children who live next door. Just surround them with books.

Let them touch the shiny covers, (fingers and toes)

turn the pages,

smell books, love books

and watch them as they listen to your voice, reading to them.
