Nursery rhymes are a great way to introduce babies to literacy and make for a wonderful bedtime reading ritual. Rhymes are usually short, sweet, and fun! Plus, the rhyming rhythm has been shown to be very pleasing to baby’s ears. It really is fun to read nursery rhymes to your baby and as he becomes a toddler, you’ll notice he’ll learn the names of some of the nursery rhymes you read and may even join you in reciting his favorites! My baby boy has recently begun to ask for a few nursery rhymes by name or I’ll find him repeating them to himself throughout the day. Here are a few of my son’s favorite nursery rhymes that I’m sure your baby will love too!
