Sparking the Little Bookworm In Your Child

When you're on maternity leave, or extended career break, to raise your children, the weekdays can become a little like Groundhog Day, with your domestic life on endless loop. That's why outings like mothers' groups, mums and bubs exercise classes, or play groups can be a godsend, to otherwise isolated and exhausted mums.

Never too early to encourage a love of reading

Have you considered your local library as a weekly outing for you and your bub, or toddler? With a renewed emphasis on early literacy in childhood, your local library's FREE weekly Rhyme Time event (0 - 2 years), during the school term, is a great way to socialise your little tikes, help them with listening skills, expose them to reading, and to meet some like-minded mums in your neighbourhood.

Requests for rhyme time locations often come up in the Sydney Mums Group chatroom, so we've compiled a list of libraries, across ten Sydney councils, with hyperlinks to more information (times and bookings), to get you started.

If we've missed your favourite place for Rhyme Time or Baby Bounce, we'd welcome your suggestions in the comments. Or, if your local library is listed, let us know if you are a regular and what you think of their story time events. It would be a great help to the mums in this online community, who are looking to join bub-friendly social events in their community.

Happy reading and rhyming!
