A Sing & Rhyme Activity for Babies

Sing a Song!

Sing & Rhyme Play with sounds, songs and rhymes.


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.
