Along with our human hands and their loving touch, we welcome babies into the world with the sound of a human voice. Our speech and song is a creative force which helps form a child, weaving a warm nest of protection around him or her.
This book, by three experienced early years educators, is full of songs, verses and games for use with very young children. Parents will find a wealth of wonderful resources to help their babies and toddlers develop healthily during this critical period.
