Why am I sharing Nursery Rhymes Lyrics?

Let me tell you why I emphasized on this kind of post. Many video links are available for nursery rhymes (I will share the nursery rhymes YouTube links too), but I would suggest you that instead of first making your baby see the videos, try and recite the rhymes to her. This will open up a new world of imagination to her, and that will be hers. She will get more creative and try to make her own characters out of it. Later, you can make her see the videos and this way she can easily relate her world to theirs.

Rhymes inculcate amazingly beautiful habits in the baby. They can improve their ability to listen carefully, analyze the characters, grasping power while giving them a fun way to learn. You would be amazed to see how they will start imitating the characters or dance to the tunes. So, recite these beauties to your baby, enjoy your time together and make her entrance into this lovely world of poems!!
