First reading books for babies
Reading with babies provides many things they need to grow and develop – closeness, feeling safe, seeing hearing, learning sounds and gradually learning what words mean. It builds relationships and early literacy.
Right from the start
Two versions of 'Right from the start', a first reading book for babies are available. There is 1 for the general community, and 1 specially developed for Aboriginal families. Both books have pictures designed to appeal to babies, as well as information about baby development and parent support services. The Aboriginal version has information about Aboriginal specific services, and translations of key words into 5 Aboriginal languages.
