Traditional children’s nursery rhymes and verse have many early literacy benefits, including helping children learn to recognize different letter sounds through rhyme and repetition. But this colorful board book provides a unique twist on learning by also featuring classic works of art, along with a word that’s given in English, Spanish, and French, so you can introduce the sounds of other languages. It allows you to share the experience of classic nursery rhymes with your baby in a whole new way.
Tie-in Activity: Encourage the budding artist in your toddler by showing her the artwork in the book. Then ask her to draw her own picture for her favorite nursery rhyme. And think about reciting nursery rhymes to your baby whenever the situation inspires you, such as saying, “One, two, buckle my shoe,” when you’re putting on your baby’s shoes.
