Condobolin children showed off their voices and sense of fun when they participated in the Condobolin Library’s Baby Rhyme Time last Friday.

The program is aimed at introducing young children to the wonderful world of books and music.

“It combines action rhymes, music and singing to develop early literacy skills and allows toddlers to dance to familiar songs,” Librarian Theresa Jude said.

“They can dance, make noise and communicate through sound.

“Parents, grandparents and carers can sit with their child and everyone can sing or act out songs and rhymes.

“It’s noisy, fun and a wonderful chance to learn some new songs for bedtime, bath time or when you’re stuck in the car. We sing each song a few times so that we can all learn the words.”

Baby Rhyme Time is followed by Storytime. Storytime is a fun session of storytelling that fosters an early love of reading and develops literacy skills and social interaction in readiness for school.

Rhyme Time takes place every Friday from 9.30am to 10am at the Condobolin Library. Storytime follows from 10am until 11am. Contact the Condobolin Library on 6895 2253 for more information.
