Top 10 Tips: Nursery Rhymes for Babies

Baby Week Leeds

In support of Baby Week Leeds initiative, here are our Top 10 Nursery Rhymes for you to sing to your baby!


What are the benefits of singing nursery rhymes?

Getting a baby involved in nursery rhymes is one of the best ways of entertaining them while teaching them something interesting at the same time. Singing nursery rhymes with a group of your toddler’s friends is an excellent way of engaging in a fun group activity.

It is also observed that nursery rhymes make babies smarter. This is because babies who are exposed to reading and singing at a younger age become better readers when they grow,  in comparison to babies who do not listen to or sing nursery rhymes. It also helps the babies to focus better.

Another benefit of nursery rhymes that cannot be ignored is the immense bond it develops between the parent and the baby. If seen as a learning experience more than a small task, it serves its true purpose.

Nursery rhymes can also help the baby create mental images in their head with every line of the rhyme. This helps them develop their imaginative skills.
