Every Wednesday at 10:30am

A lap-sit story time for children from birth to 2 years old with an adult caregiver. 

Parlez-Vous Francais, Baby?  Join Us For Baby Tales With an International Twist!  Every Wednesday at Main Library, babies (ranging in age from birth to two) and their caregivers fill our program room for Baby Tales. The air bursts with the sweet sounds of laughter, singing, and curious exploration! We have been fortunate to have patrons from all over the world attend this program and share their native languages with us. So far we have sung the song “Are You Sleeping, Brother John” in eight different languages!  After initially singing in English and French we branched out to Spanish, Polish, Russian, Afrikaans, Croatian, and Italian to the delight of both babies and adults! Recently, we have started learning some traditional French nursery rhymes as well.

“Infants are born ‘citizens of the world’ with regard to language. Newborns can distinguish sounds from a language, even if they have never heard the language before. Brain research tells us that hearing the tones and sounds of different languages helps the brain to grow.” (Jackie Silberg, 125 Brain Games For Babies).

Come sing with us at Baby Tales and take your baby on a trip around the world!

Every Wednesday at 10:30am

A lap-sit story time for children from birth to 2 years old with an adult caregiver. 

Parlez-Vous Francais, Baby?  Join Us For Baby Tales With an International Twist!  Every Wednesday at Main Library, babies (ranging in age from birth to two) and their caregivers fill our program room for Baby Tales. The air bursts with the sweet sounds of laughter, singing, and curious exploration! We have been fortunate to have patrons from all over the world attend this program and share their native languages with us. So far we have sung the song “Are You Sleeping, Brother John” in eight different languages!  After initially singing in English and French we branched out to Spanish, Polish, Russian, Afrikaans, Croatian, and Italian to the delight of both babies and adults! Recently, we have started learning some traditional French nursery rhymes as well.

“Infants are born ‘citizens of the world’ with regard to language. Newborns can distinguish sounds from a language, even if they have never heard the language before. Brain research tells us that hearing the tones and sounds of different languages helps the brain to grow.” (Jackie Silberg, 125 Brain Games For Babies).

Come sing with us at Baby Tales and take your baby on a trip around the world!
