Sauk County Home and Community Education donates to Birth Center


hce book donationEvery year for Home and Community Education Week, the Sauk County Home and Community Education (HCE)  group donates books to the Birth Center to be given out to newborns. 

Home and Community Education Week is November 4-10, 2018.  Reading to babies at an early age is very important. Studies have shown that children who were read to as newborns have a larger vocabulary, as well as more advanced mathematical skills, than other kids their age.  There is also a direct link between how many words a baby hears each day and her language skills.
