See what your child is learningYour voice is your child's favorite sound. Even if they can't talk back yet, they're listening to your words. Stretching out your words and using a sing-song voice makes it fun. This also helps their brain connect sounds and the ways we use our mouths to make them. You may not see it, but inside their brain they are practicing talking with you.
