The article presents information on communicating with babies through music. Songs and music should be shared with children to build learning skills. Throughout the ages, parents have used music to soothe babies to sleep. But musical experiences also provide lots of opportunities for learning. Sometimes very young children are not sure what the words in a song mean or how to pronounce them, but they still try with to learn to sing a song a parent has introduced. Thus, frequently singing nursery songs with toddlers will help them stretch their ability to put words together.
