Nursery rhymes have always held a special place in the American culture. For centuries, parents have sung nursery rhymes to their children to keep them calm and engaged while teaching them new language skills. Nursery rhymes can be used to teach lessons and introduce your child to the joys of song.
Repetitive rhyming clues help young children better understand the lyrics as it plays for them. When they know the words, it gets them a lot more excited to participate and sing each time they hear it. The more words they know, the more enthusiastic they will be.
The rhymes we find in nursery rhymes are a great literary device that children latch onto. No matter what their age is, whether they are infants, or just learning how to talk, the rhymes in songs like these do a terrific job in helping them develop their literary skills.
