Baby Talk Program


at the Illinois Prairie District Public Library

*This program is over for the summer, Baby Talk will return in September.*

Baby Talk is a new Woodford County Program for children 0-36 months. Its mission is to positively impact child development and nurture healthy parent-child relationships during the critical early years.

There are many benefits to reading to your children. Reading aloud builds parent/child relationships, encourages language development, boosts a child’s self-concept, and lays a foundation for moral development. Reading helps your baby to understand the world, encourages imagination and creativity, and makes parenting easier.
