Singing slows down language so children can hear the smaller parts of words. Music even builds brain connections that help with mathematical reasoning!

  • Sing lullabies while holding your child. He loves being close to you while you sing.
  • Sing the stories or rhymes in books.
  • Repeat songs and add actions, such as clapping, waving, or pointing.
  • Sing along with children's music.
  • Make up your own songs!
