Many projects and activities will emphasize the importance of reading to babies AND parents will learn how to do this most effectively.  Each instructor will also share insight about infant development and parenting. The class concludes with a free play period. Program meets once a week for 6 weeks. Program is open to infants (birth to 18 months) and their caregivers and is limited to 12 participants per class.  To register, please call 793-7114.
