Nursery rhymes are perfect for babies and toddlers. They are short and simple to recite or sing. They include words that begin and end with the same sounds, helping children’s brains to recognize syllables and hear similarities in patterns. Familiarity with nursery rhymes can lead to phonological awareness. The repetition in nursery rhymes helps increase a child’s vocabulary.  Research shows that children who enter kindergarten knowing nursery rhymes will have an easier time learning how to read.

Mother Goose on the Loose® is based on nursery rhymes that are presented in a variety of different ways.
