The Benefits of Books for Baby

There are endless benefits when it comes to reading to your little ones.  It bolsters language development, encourages the advancement of literacy skills, and makes them better readers, writers, listeners, and speakers in general.  Our parents are always asking for book recommendations, and we have plenty of favorites.  Picture books are becoming more and more […]
