Sing With Me! Better Beginnings pilot program for two year olds

Sing With Me is a pilot initiative available through participating libraries. Come back soon for a list of participating libraries. 

Singing and reading aloud with your child is one of the most important things you can do to nurutre their early learning and brain development. Better Beginnings' Sing With Me reading pack provides parents with lots of resources to use at home.

The Sing With Me Pack includes:

 - Your very own copy of Row, Row, Row Your Boat by Matt Shanks

 - A nursery rhyme CD and booklet with lyrics and activities

 - A nursery rhyme puzzle magnet to keep on your fridge at home

 - A list of great books for toddlers to look for at your local public library

 

For parents and carers

You can download or listen online to the songs from the Sing With Me nursery rhyme CD. Which one is your child's favourite?

The Parents and Carers Guide provides different ideas on how to use your Sing With Me pack. 

 

For libraries

Check out the Sing With Me resources available to support your library to deliver the program in your community.

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.
