More and more researchers are finding a valuable connection between music and early learning. Research has confirmed that music plays a vital role in the development of reading and writing skills. By combining story time with music and movement, even the most reluctant reader’s interest in books will be awakened. Also, by simply adding action songs to story time it helps children anchor new information and enhances the entire reading experience.
This collection of engaging songs, dances and activities are designed to motivate children to read, and foster a lifelong love for reading. By far, the most effective way to encourage children to love reading is to read aloud to them. Music and movement provides the integration of body and mind, and promotes reading readiness; comprehension, vocabulary and memory skills. Combine reading aloud with songs that enhance the total experience and watch your children blossom with a joy of reading!
