The Victorian Government is undertaking a campaign entitled 'Babies Love Books' as part of their Young Readers Program.
I'll be doing some blog posts about this, both here at Writing Out Loud and at Kids Book Review.
Because Tania McCartney and I both believe reading is such an important part of a child's life, you'll see Kids Book Review take part in this campaign over the coming week, in a number of ways:
Firstly, we'll give you all the information about the program.
Then, we will be interviewing the ambassadors of Babies Love Books!
You'll also see a number of baby book reviews appearing over the coming days, which we hope will give you some great ideas for reading to your little ones.
And, if that isn't enough, we also have a very special guest post about reading to little wrigglers!
In the meantime, if you're in Melbourne or the surrounding suburbs, you might like to attend one of the Babies Love Books author visits at a number of libraries:
