Babies can get involved with TinyTalk

By LYNDSEY WRIGHT

A FAMILY reading fortnight has captured the imaginations of parents and children in Tynedale.

But as well as including mums and dads in their young children’s development, parents with babies can also get involved.

TinyTalk – which specialises in baby signing – is supporting the National Literacy Trust’s family reading fortnight by launching its new curriculum in the Tyne Valley.

TinyTalk’s co-ordinator in the Tyne Valley, Debi Brown, said: “It is never too early to start introducing books to your baby.

“Reading with your child is a great way to help their speech and language skills as well as their early literacy skills.

“We have taken this much-loved bonding time and incorporated the use of sign language to help illustrate the meaning of the words.

TinyTalk classes take place on Mondays at Prudhoe Methodist Church and Fridays at Hexham Community Centre.
