One of the most important tools in the learning tool-kit is music. If your toddler is anything like mine, they LOVE singing, and lyrics and repetition get into their little head and stay for their whole life. The rhyming words create patterns that help with vocabulary, reading, and even math. Singing while reading and looking at pictures helps retention and learning even more, so we’ve found a whole CONCERT of books that you and your little one can sing along with!
