BabyRead volunteers meet with
families and their babies to encourage them to read, talk,and sing, using good practices.
BabyRead volunteers bring
books and snacks to the meetings, leaving 2 books with families each month.
BabyRead's goal is to encourage Moms and other caregivers to read to their babies every day.
Early exposure to reading, talking and singing significantly helps children succeed in school and in later life.
BabyRead works with elementary
schools and their families in Oconee
