Rhymers will be readers: it's that simple. Experts in literacy and child development have discovered that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they're four years old, they're usually among the best readers by the time they're eight.

I really believe this. My mom (who is a kindergarten teacher)always has me work on Nursery Rhymes with my little kids.

I agree completely.I have a friend who was telling her kids nursery rhymes from the time they were born, and both of her kids have excellent reading skills and make straight A's in reading. Excellent blog, thanks for sharing! Feel free to visit me back :)

I too have randomly found your blog after starting my own baby blog to capture my pregnancy moments and found yours to be full of great ideas :)

I'm so glad I kept all my bursery rhyme books from childhood, now I can read them to my son when he arrives. Great to know about the lliteracy stats.

That is very true about nursery rhymes. The learning that children do in the early years is invaluable for their development later on. For more useful parenting tips, you should definitely visit the website: www.awesomeparents.com/blog/
