June Early Learning Tip -

One way children learn vocabulary is from listening to stories. They listen to understand what is being said, which helps them learn new words. Stories aren’t just found in books. You can tell stories about your day, your memories from growing up, or something about your child’s life. You can also use wordless picture books and make up a story together!

Please call us or email info@moablibrary.org with any questions. We are here to help.

Happy Summertime, Everyone!
