Read to your children, say doctors


The American Academy of Pediatrics is joining with other organizations to call for parents to read aloud to their children — from birth — to foster literacy and social skills. A recent article from NPR highlights a new initiative by pediatricians to urge parents to read to their children and to provide books for families.

The Springfield City Library has supported early literacy and lifelong learning for generations. Our librarians have created a list of suggested read-aloud books for infants and toddlers. Stop by your branch library and ask our librarians to assist you in finding good books to share with your families.
