Free Classes Teach Baby Activities and Provide Free Books

A new program called “Small Talk Springfield” will teach parents and caretakers fun new ways to talk, read and play with their babies – all activities that help babies’ brains grow. The classes also provide feedback through a unique new talk pedometers. Light refreshments and childcare will be provided, and children will receive a free book after each session. Families will also receive free baby supplies and a chance to win gift cards.

The first of 13 classes will take place on Wednesday, October 25th, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Library Express at Pine Point, located at 204 Boston Road in Springfield. Parents and caretakers are encouraged to sign up if they have a child 0-30 months old, access to a cell phone, and the ability to attend the classes and complete the word counter recordings.
