The Advertiser Little Big Book Club is offering parents of babies aged between 6 months and 12 months a free reading pack. To collect your pack simply present 'Your Child's Personal Health Record' (the blue book) at the Kadina or Wallaroo Library counters.
Reading aloud and sharing books is a special time for you and your child. It's also one of the most important activities you can do to help your child develop the skills they will need to learn to read and write.
