Does your little one enjoy nursery rhymes? The benefits of your child listening to, singing along and following actions with nursery rhymes are greater than you may have ever realised.
The other day a friend looked at a gorgeous book we have in our son’s book collection and said ‘I don’t like books like this, there’s no story to read to my daughter’. I was so surprised! As a teacher, I have always enjoyed using books with no words. Apart from the fact that the illustrations are often stunning and can be enjoyable to share in themselves, there are so many benefits to reading picture books of this genre. Wordless picture books are particularly wonderful because they can be used with children of all ages.
