Ten Minutes a Day – Orange Library

By No Comments

Storytime for babies 0-18 months.

Ten Minutes a Day is an exciting program that you share with your child of 0-18 months. It is designed to enhance language development, develop pre-literacy skills, stimulate imagination, and make reading with your child a part of your everyday routine.

We use nursery rhymes, action songs, finger plays and stories in a fun and interactive way. We also share tips with parents on how to include these in their routines at home.  Only ten minutes a day can make a lifetime of difference!
