Do you remember reading and singing nursery rhymes with your parents?  Do you know that it is crucial that children have these experiences to lay the foundation for literacy later in life?  Even rocking your baby in a steady beat will develop that inner beat within your child, which will lead to the development of literacy skills as they mature into readers.  PLEASE read nursery rhymes with your children, no matter how old they are!  And as they get older, don't stop!  Older children will reap benefits in their own development if you continue to read TO and WITH them at home!!
