Read Right Now! RHYMING

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), rhyming and poetry are important ways parents can promote early brain development and boost vocabulary in their young children. Many books written for babies and toddlers use similar sounds and speech patterns that help them learn new words. But rhymes are also learned directly from parents and caregivers, and then passed down by word of mouth from generation to generation.

The AAP recommends that parents share rhymes with their children—either by reciting memorized nursery rhymes or reading books in rhyme—and work in some fun and snuggling, too. By playing simple games, like clapping to the rhythm in a poem or rhyming words to the names of everyday objects, parents can encourage creative thinking in their children and create wonderful memories that can be passed down to future generations.
