Children are sponges for learning. From birth to age 5, help your child unlock their potential for learning & reading with these books and activities.

When you sing, you slow down your speech. This helps your child hear the smaller sounds in words, learn syllables and develop vocabulary. Singing also helps develop listening and memory skills.
Singing together is a fun bonding experience - whether you're a good singer or not.
Use the books mentioned here to sing familiar rhymes or songs with your child. Reserve all of them all.
