In this cumulative nursery rhyme and folk song, a parade forms when several farm animals join a boy as he dances around the farmyard feeding the animals.

Age Group 18 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Beginning to explore books on their own
  • May recite familiar stories to dolls or stuffed animals
  • Hearing favorite books over and over
  • May finish sentences in favorite books if you pause

Your child’s memory is expanding and they may surprise you with knowing the words of some of your favorite books and songs. Finger plays can help them to remember the songs, too. This is a busy time of brain building for your little one and you may find that they want a lot of repetition with favorite songs, stories, and activities. They’re building their own ability to engage in these things independently, so when you’re exhausted and your toddler is saying “Again! Again!” know that you’re investing in their ability to enjoy learning on their own.

No matter how well you sing, your child thinks your singing voice is the most beautiful voice on the planet. 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. Even if your toddler is moving about while you sing the words, it’s okay. They are still listening (and learning)! Every new experience is one that helps your child grow, so sing like you are on stage and have fun with your little audience.
