Hello! My name is Carolyn McBee. I’m a library associate in my favorite place in the library, the children’s department. Engaging with our youngest patrons and their caregivers is such a joyful part of each day here at NCPL.
Something I am really passionate about is early literacy. It’s never too early to begin reading to your little one. Even in-utero your child is beginning to learn from the sound and rhythm of your voice as you talk and sing to her. The most meaningful 15 minutes of your day are the 15 minutes you read aloud to your child. I encourage you to embark on the reading adventure to cultivate a love for books. After all, you are your child’s first and most important teacher.
There are so many wonderful books available in our department. Here is a sampling of titles to consider reading to your baby or toddler:
Happy snuggling and reading,
