A Berkeley parent of a now 4 year old, receiving books since he was 2. She was, walking by as we packed up from one of our Baby Book Club meet ups:
"Oh! It's like Christmas every month!"
"As soon as the her book arrives, she finds her name on the address label. She loves getting her own book, her own mail, and can't wait to read it." Parent of a 3 year old, so please that her child asks HER to read with her more since IL books began arriving, not the other way around.
A parent from Eugene, Oregon with whom I struck up a conversation as we waited on a BART platform. She had her nearly 1-year old, who has been receiving IL books from 2 months old, with her in a Snugli. This one's paraphrased: 'When the first few books arrived, I thought, "meh", they didn't look interesting to me. But! The baby LOVED them! When the one with photos of babies, and baby faces came, she didn't want to put it down!' That's when I realized the people choosing the books know a lot about infant development and interests, more than I do."
I loved that conversation because it brought out the high quality of Imagination Library books. The Book Selection team does a great job, reviewing and researching early childhood and infant literature year round to keep Imagination Library a top notch collection: absorbing and interesting, diverse, relevant and beautiful. Both you and your child can benefit from their good work. Register your child!
