ABSTRACT
Infancy is the time to begin language and book awareness. Men are in a unique position to open the doors to early literacy for their little ones. All they need to know is how to accomplish this goal. 'Man in the moon for male caregivers' invites fathers to attend a 30 minute, age appropriate circle time. Here they learn songs, how to share books, sign language, and even ways to exercise with their infants to encourage language development.
