Helping Babies Learn
by Narelda Joy
My latest book project HELP BABIES LEARN is very exciting!
I am illustrating a book that will be given free to newborn babies in Tasmania, to encourage new mums to read to their babies right from day one.
The talented Dr Anne Morgan is the author, and the book is the initiative of the Toast for Kids Charity, with Steve Martin as President, and supported by the Tasmanian branch of the Children’s Book Council of Australia.
It is well documented that Tasmania has the lowest levels of literacy in Australia, with more than half of the state’s population having inadequate reading and writing skills. It’s also well researched that reading to babies from day one is vital in changing those statistics.
Can you help?
