    at my library they have a story session on a friday afternoon, so i take both jordan and lily-mae to those during the school hols. me and lily-mae cant go during term time as the session runs till 3, so we would be late to collect jordan from school. however, we do go occasionally at weekends and they both really enjoy it. both my lo's love books

    go for it honey, the level of literacy is so low sometimes that the schools will love you for it, the sooner they get used to books and reading the better, really really helps their development in lots of areas...

    We don't go as often as we should but Seren has her own library at home :oops: I can't resist buying her books and have got her all my old faves plus some really funky new ones. Its our treat, ging to Ottakers and getting a new book each. Both me and OH are book worms so we are hoping she will be too.

    I think it depends on the child age. I only take noah to the library to go to the baby group there. Its only a small village so oterwise the kiddy facilities arnt anything inspiring, and all he wants to do is try to eat the (already rather chewed) books. Once he take more of an interest I will be more like beanie. I love books and Im on a mission to build up a library of books myself at home. I always buy books never hire them, as my taste is a it obsure anyway.

    Yvanne if your wanting to push ahead and teach your little one, I know my SIL said about how you can go along to the infant schools and talk to them aout how they would like you to teach them. Because they have certain teaching systems, it can do more harm than good to teach them yourselves because it confusses them when the teachers try to teach them differnently. Like teaching phonetics instead of the normal alphabet. A lot of infant schools do open days or an evening thing where they can talk to you about educating your child and the new sylaus, so you can be prepared.
