Description of this Book

Emerging research indicates that early exposure to songs, poems, rhymes and fingerplays enhances the structure and capacity of the areas of the brain which lay the foundation for future reading. Since the size of a child's vocabulary and its ability to discriminate sounds are two of the best predictors of reading readiness, it only makes sense that we use every opportunity to enrich the language environment with rhythm and rhyme.
