Ah May! May flowers, May baskets, May babies!
May babies? Yes, it is that time of year again! May is when we celebrate the First Tales Early Literacy Program: All babies born during the month of May at the Falmouth Hospital Birthing Center will receive a copy of Margaret Wise Brown’s classic children’s book, Goodnight Moon and a Falmouth Public Library onesie designed by Tessa Morgan of Flying Pig Pottery in Woods Hole.
The Friends of the Falmouth Public Library and the Early Childhood Resource Center at the Falmouth Public Library are always delighted to join forces in the promotion of early literacy. We love to encourage reading to newborn babies!
According to the Massachusetts Department of Early Education & Care:
“Parents have the greatest impact on their children’s life. The first three years of life are a time of rapid brain development and learning. This time becomes critically important for infants and toddlers as they develop the foundations for learning.”
So if you know of any new parents during the month of May, pass the word…
