Book World, Episode 5: Songs and Rhymes

Jessica, Coordinator of Early Literacy Programs; Sheneatha, Coordinator of Early Literacy Programs

La, la, la!  Singing is not only fun but also important for helping children become great readers.  In this episode, Sheneatha teaches an active song that is one of the children’s favorites: “ZOOM!”  Through singing, babies learn individual sounds and get ready for reading. Bigger children also learn new words, letters, and sounds when you sing together so they will be easier to recognize and understand as children start to read. So, let’s sing often and have lots of fun!
