Singing songs and rhymes with your child is really good for them, as the rhythms and repetitive language make it easier for them to learn language skills. Your child will love hearing the same rhymes over and over again and will soon learn to join in with the actions. Singing and reciting with your child is also a great way of bonding with them.

The Words for Life website has the words and actions to some popular songs and nursery rhymes, with some mp3s to listen and sing along to as well.
