Books are the best toys!
Although some parents find nothing unusual in the idea of reading to their baby, others are surprised that such young children would be interested in books, assuming that they wouldn't understand everything their parents were saying. On November 8, 2012, Claude Chagnon, President of the Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation, unveiled the fourth phase of the Foundation's social operation devoted to early childhood development. Mr. Chagnon was accompanied by Nicole Léger, Quebec Families Minister, Lucienne Robillard, Chairman of the Board of Avenir d'enfants, Diane Mockle, Chief Executive Officer of the Literacy Foundation, and several other partners. This new phase in the multimedia campaign that was originally launched in October 2009 focuses on the importance of reading in baby development.
