City Songbirds Nursery Rhymes

"Songs and Rhyme Make Talking Time!"
 

Singing songs and rhymes with your baby / child is really good for them, as the rhythms and repetitive language make it easier for babies 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.

 

Below are the words to some popular songs and nursery rhymes, prepared by the Stoke-on-Trent City Songbirds, with some mp3s to listen and sing along to as well.
