Story Time Fun!

By Terry and Candace Martin

When we first found out we were expecting, we knew we wanted to get as many books for our baby boy to enjoy. Now at 7 months, Titus has a collection of books; some classics, some new and diverse that include stories and characters that look like him.

He loves books that have touch and feel, makes sounds and lots of images. We have recently been reading My First 100 Words, a board book filled with colors, words and pictures that describe each word.

Titus loves to help turn the pages and even hold the book himself. We read each page using different voices and sounds and discuss the illustrations on each page.

We also took advantage of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library that sends him a FREE book every month until he is five years old. It is always exciting each month to see what book he will get and add it to his bookshelf.
