Reading with your child helps them to develop and understand not only language, but the world around them.  And you just can’t beat that bonding time together.  Encourage your little one(s) inner bookworm early; there are lots of free story times available for you here in Charlotte to choose from.  Get out to one, hear some stories, sing some songs and meet some new friends along the way, all while nourishing your little reader!
