Generous book donations for newborns

Just one day old, and Oliver already has a book in hand, thanks to a donation from the Australian Literacy Educators’ Association.

The copy of 'Ten Fingers and Ten Little Toes' was one of over fifty baby books gifted to the Maternity Unit at Royal North Shore Hospital.

Mum Carolina and Dad Sebastian have already planned a lifetime of reading for their son. “We want him to read books,” said Carolina.

Sebastian said someone had already given the family a small bookstand for the baby.

We were also given a baby book in black and white — because apparently babies can only see in black and white at first.

Carolina added they also had a Peter Rabbit book ready to read to Oliver.

The Australian Literacy Educators’ Association is dedicated to literacy and English language learning from early childhood through all stages of schooling and tertiary education contexts.
