Does your child or grandchild love having you read stories to them? Do you want to learn how to help your child or grandchild develop important language skills? Would you like to bond with your child or grandchild through an interactive and engaging experience at the City of Tea Tree Gully Library?

Then bring your little ones and their favourite book along to the City of Tea Tree Gully’s Practical Workshop Event; ‘Reading Aloud to Children,’ featuring guest speaker, Ruth Carson. This special event will be held in part of the Reader’s Festival on Saturday, 7th of August, 2010 from 11:00am to 12:00noon in the Children’s Area of the Library.
