Books for Babies

Books for Babies is a ministry under St. Barbara’s to encourage parents to read to their babies daily starting at birth. Each week a board book and bookmark are delivered to new parents at the Camp Lejeune Naval Hospital. The value of reading to babies starting at birth for 15 minutes a day is discussed with new parents and options for obtaining books are shared. Research shows that reading consistently to children does boost vocabulary and literacy skills. If you would like to share in this ministry, donations may be made through the website or by check to St Barbara’s ACC with Books for Babies designated on the Memo line.
