Who we are News 'Santa Suit' from Deirdre at Libraries NI Share a Story, Share a Smile! Hi everyone! It's almost Christmas! We have some lovely stories for families to share this coming week! There are so many benefits to Sharing Stories with your children. Sharing stories can:help your child recognise sounds, words and develop early literacy skillshelp develop you child's social skills and communication skillshelp your child understand change for example starting school, going to the doctors and also the emotions that can go along with them. It's also important to remember that sharing stories with your child doesn’t mean you have to read. Just looking at books with your child can make you a great story teller and give you the opportunity to model language use. It's also great bonding time for you and your child!
