Inside: Looking for singable books your toddlers and preschoolers will love? Here is our favorite collection!
Our toddlers and preschoolers love to sing! We sing various times during our day.
You don’t need to have a beautiful voice, either. I used to be very self-conscious about my voice, knowing it was nothing close to my sister Lauri’s professional sound.
But when I am singing with my little friends, I forget that. I just relax and enjoy the moment.
I even sing up on stage with the children in front of an audience!
Another favorite time to sing is while reading books. We love our collection of singable books!
Singing instead of reading the words is a great way to build language skills and learn new words, too.
