2014 Summer Reading Program
for Babies and Toddlers

June 16 to August 2

Summer is a great time to read, talk, play, and sing with your baby!

This summer, parents of babies 0-18 months are encouraged to take part in a special reading program for babies and toddlers and the adults who love them.

Visit your local library to pick up your Baby and Toddler Activity Sheet.

Complete at least seven activities and read for 10 minutes or more (per activity) with your baby or toddler to earn a free board book and be entered into a drawing for an annual pass to Olympic National Park.
