Find books with big prints and pictures and read to your child and later encourage them to read the same book to their favorite toys and you can also play lullaby music to set the mood.
3. What Will Papa Buy
To promote creativity and imagination skills.
Sing this nursery rhyme and encourage the children to think about what Papa will buy for the baby.
Hush, a little baby, don’t say a word;
Papa’s going to buy you a mocking bird.

After you have sung this rhyme, challenge the children to sing the same rhyme but replace “diamond ring” with something else.
