Twinkle twinkle little star

This popular nursery rhyme is a great way to help your baby enjoy music.

You can just sing to your baby. Or, if you like, you can do the actions in bold too.

This one goes:

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, (Open and close your first)

How I wonder what you are. (Open up your hands and shrug)

Up above the world so high, (Point at the sky)

Like a diamond in the sky. (Make a diamond shape with your fingers)

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, (Open and close your first)

How I wonder what you are. (Open up your hands and shrug)

Good to know

Hearing music helps your baby learn about sounds and meanings of words.
