Baby Rhyme Time

Songs, rhymes and fun for babies and their families

Come along to baby rhyme time and join in the fun as we sing songs and action rhymes, and share great books for babies.

Rhyme times are held in public libraries across Western Australia. During sessions parents, grandparents and carers sit with their child and the group leader guides everyone through a selection of songs and rhymes. It's noisy, fun and a wonderful chance to learn some new songs for bedtime, bathtime or when you're stuck in the car. We sing each song a few times so that we can all learn the words.

Rhymes and songs are great for growing baby brains! Find out more here.

I always knew reading to my kids was important, but this has opened my eyes to how important and how much.

I tell stories in Vietnamese and read to my children in English.  I only started reading English after receiving Better Beginnings.

One mother reads with her four year old every afternoon after school now.  She said without these books, they would not have any to read.

I think it’s been a wonderful initiative.  I feel sure it’s going to benefit both the children and parents and develop links with the library.

…I never thought of reading to the children.  Better Beginnings has really boosted my confidence.

Better Beginnings gave me confidence. I know reading is an everyday tool and teaching my children will help them be more successful in life.
