My granddaughter, Claire LaPorte, is 15 months old. My son and daughter-in-law have read to her every day since she was an infant. Claire loves to go to the East Springfield Library with her mom (pictured with bookshelves when she was a few months old) as the library is at the end of their street. Claire absolutely loves books and now "reads" to herself. My husband and I enjoy babysitting, and we take turns reading to her at bedtime.
