Back to school with baby music


We know it’s not fun to think about but summer is coming to an end soon. Before you know it, you just might be sending your toddler off to pre-school. This is the perfect time to prep them for the experience with baby music!

If you get your child up and dancing and wiggling around to a CD filled with baby music, you’ll be sure to boost their self-esteem and get them ready for the whole new world of socializing that they’re about to be exposed to. Moving around to music will also help them develop and learn rhythm skills—and scientific research shows that this helps to build areas of the brain that bolsters their ability to learn math and science. Who knew baby music could help with areas that seem so different?

Listening and singing along to children’s songs will also help them to develop their comprehension skills, which are critical to helping them learn the alphabet and how to read. Even just playing a baby CD for them significantly boosts their listening abilities, which in turn benefits their social skills. They’ll be more apt to pay attention when it’s someone else’s turn to share in Show and Tell.

A CD filled with baby music like Favorite Silly Songs, Preschool Favorites or Favorite Toddler Tunes are great choices for getting them excited about movement—and the content will keep them captivated.

Another fun way to encourage children to learn and sing along with children’s songs are some of our Sing-a-long board books, such as The Wheels on the Bus, 5 Little Monkeys Jumpin’ on the Bed and the old school favorite, Old MacDonald Had a Farm. This is a great way to help little ones learn the alphabet—and why not get a head start on that before they start school? You’ll have fun and bond with your child by reading and singing along with them—and it’ll bring you back to your own back to school days!
