Children’s library play area

I recently read an article in Children & Libraries about the importance of play in early literacy development. You needn’t spend a fortune on toys to support this learning for babies and toddlers. Find out how to make some simple tabletop activities in a blogpost by a new youth services assistant, Kirsten Caldwell. She suggests a simple sorting activity for younger children, and making tangram shapes to laminate and use as puzzles, or a Mr. Potato Head made from felt for older kids.
