GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Staff, nurses, and parents at the Abrazo Arrowhead Campus last week read to little ones during the Babies with Books read-a-thon. The international initiative promotes reading to newborns. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, reading from birth onwards helps advance brain development, as well as language, vocabulary, listening, and memory skills.

Nurses handed out children’s books to families and encouraged reading while they were in the hospital. It’s also a great way for families to bond with their little ones and that is Something Good!
