MORE Picture Books You Can Sing!

If you’re ready for more sing-along books, check out these recommendations and let us know your favorites in the comments!

Singing is great for early literacy development because it is typically slower than regular speech, making it easier to hear the smaller sounds in larger words (“the itsy-bitsy spi-der climbed up the wa-ter spout”). It also helps children hear rhyming sounds and understand that some words sound similar… which is helpful when they are sounding out words later!

Plus, it’s just fun and another way to build connection with your little one.
