To promote the love of reading to children in a fun way, these workshops were developed to build children's confidence and early literacy skills - from baby, to toddler, to preschooler. Each program's activities are important learning enhancements which create an interaction between parent and child. This interaction helps children build comprehension skills which readies them for the experience and enjoyment of Storytime
