Research shows that early experiences in children’s lives have a lifelong impact on their learning and development. From the moment they’re born, babies learn to feel safe and secure in their world through the relationships they have with their parents and caregivers. When adults provide little ones with consistent, nurturing care from the very beginning, they help them to develop healthy attitudes about themselves and create trusting relationships with others.
In partnership with Too Small to Fail, the National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI) is excited to release a curated playlist of songs that encourage parents and children to sing together while celebrating the beauty and brilliance of Black children and their families.
In celebration of Black History Month, the National Black Child Institute (NBCDI) shares a great list of culturally relevant and developmentally appropriate books parents and caregivers can share with little ones.
