About 1-2-3 Play with Me

Join us every week throughout September and early October on social media to learn more about the importance of play and healthy caregiver/child relationships in your child's early development.   Our skilled Children's Librarians will share fun and engaging ways to play with your little one at home!

 

Importance of Play

Playing is important for health brain development.  Playing allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and strength (physical, cognitive, and emotional).  It is through play, children at a very early age engage and interact with the world around them.  1-2-3 Play with Me at home will help you engage in play with your child through multiple different avenues. 

Please visit with your children's librarian for more information on the importance of play in child development.
