„Books for Babies“ in New Zealand

©Christchurch-City-Libraries”Books for Babies“ has been carried out by the Christchurch City Libraries since 1990. Each year, ca. 5,000 “Books for Babies“-packages are distributed to all parents of newborns by hospitals, midwives and the homebirth association. These packs contain the board book “Baby’s World“ featuring large, black and white figures especially designed for babies in their first six months of age.

The project targets the first months of babies’ lives as language, books and stories are important from the first day of early childhood development.
