For Babies

A Sing & Rhyme Activity for Babies

Sing a Song!

Sing & Rhyme Play with sounds, songs and rhymes.

PLAY

Sing a Song!

Babies love to sing! When we sing, we naturally slow our language down, making it easier for babies to hear the smaller sounds that make up language. Plus, it's really fun too! Sing every day with your baby and come to your neighborhood library branch to find songbooks and CDs.


SING

Roll Roll Sugar Babies

Roll, roll, sugar babies, (roll baby's hands together)

Roll, roll sugar babies, 

Push, (gently push hands away from baby)

Pull, (gently push hands toward baby)

Clap, clap, clap! (clap hands)
