Babbling Baby

Baby Toddler Playtime

Does your child babble or make lots of sounds? This is a first step in learning to speak. Set these sounds to music. If they’re saying, “Ba, ba, ba” sing this sound to a favorite tune. Watch their eyes light up. Guess what? Your baby’s brain lit up too!”

See what your child is learning

Your child will love the fact that you’re singing along with them. By doing so, you and your child are having a conversation with sounds, which helps them listen carefully and copy you. This gets them ready for conversations with words, which will lead to better reading skills.
