The webinar focuses on strategies to promote the idea of sharing books with babies and toddlers. It highlights the most successful ways of engaging young children in interactions with books and explores the kinds of books babies and toddlers most enjoy. Parents are encouraged to make shared book reading a part of their daily lives, something that can happen anytime and anywhere!! By fostering a love of books early on, we are helping to lay the foundation for future success when children are formally taught to read and write. The journey of emergent literacy begins at birth.
