Swing into the Youth Room and turn sounds and rhythms into reading!
Learning language is a complex process, with sounds, tones, variations of pitch and nuances of enunciation. The rhythm and repetition of nursery rhymes helps to simplify that process. When books are included, with various pictures and styles by various illustrators, an important extension for learning is established. By reading a book of nursery rhymes, you are helping your child make a leap in learning language, and enhancing a crucial mental pathway from concrete to abstract thinking. Take your little one through the Mother Goose favorites (E MOT) on the picture book shelves, or the board book section for individual rhymes. Don’t forget to check nonficton (398.2) for larger collections. You may find some new favorites to share!
