Rhyming books help children hear how words sound alike and as the book becomes a favorite through repeated readings, the rhymes will help your child know what words come next. We selected this beautiful board book because "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is a lullaby that many of us remember from our own childhoods. Why are lullabies and songs important tools in raising your baby? Babies grow healthy and strong when they feel safe. That sense of safety begins with the sound of your voice, a sound that is even more comforting when it hums and sings. Illustrating this traditional lullaby are the animals of artist Sylvia Long . This book will grow with your child. He will enjoy Long's animals and their bedtime routines as he develops ones of his own in years to come.

Not all of us have singing skills that would land us a spot on American Idol. No worries, your baby thinks your voice sounds great. Sing along with the words of the book if you know the tune. You might need to listen to a clip online to learn it or be reminded of it. Hold your baby on your chest as you hum or sing the classic lullaby so your baby can feel the vibrations of the music. Every new experience is one that helps your baby grow, so sing like you are on stage and your child will be your best audience.
