Soothing Rhymes

Baby Toddler Anytime Anywhere

When your child seems fussy, try singing a rhyme or a song. Do they calm down when your voice is quiet, or do they respond to big facial expressions and an enthusiastic voice? Try different rhymes and songs to find their favorites.

See what your child is learning

When you respond to your child’s movements and sounds, you build a trusting relationship that supports future learning. You also teach them ways to deal with stress while building a love of language.
