Baby Bounce (Eastgate Library) @ Eastgate Library
Aug 30 @ 10:00 am – 10:30 am

Please join us at 10 a.m. on Wednesday and Saturday mornings at the Eastgate Branch for Baby Bounce for parents and caregivers of tiny tots aged 1 day to 18 months.  With your baby on your lap, together we’ll sing and play and begin the fascinating and lifelong journey of joyful learning.

The class is free and no registration is required.

Baby Bounce will be approximately 30 minutes and involve interactive songs, finger-plays, stories, shakers, colorful scarves and lots of giggles!  All of these things are crucial for a small child’s mental and social development and what better way to boost brain growth and early literacy than a fun filled story time at the library!

As babies grow, they learn by interacting, playing, imitating adults and by watching others.  In Baby Bounce, caregivers learn songs and finger plays to use at home with their children; they will hear simple stories, shake shakers, and make scarves fly – all in ways to best help babies and their rapidly growing brains develop.
