SAN BERNARDINO, CA- Experts say that reading to babies and toddlers improves their learning potential. San Bernardino County’s First 5 Program added talking and singing to the formula at last Saturday’s “Talk, Read, Sing Fest” at the Highland Library. At least 100 children visited the event and received access to a variety of activities.
They received free books and piggy banks (No they were not full of money). There was also face painting, a magic show, plus a short concert! In addition to the fun stuff, there was a resource fair that provided valuable information to the many parents in attendance.
The free event was from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call First 5 for information regarding upcoming events being scheduled for young children at (909) 386-7706.
