Singing along to nursery rhymes with your little one is a great first experience. It brings them an enormous amount of enjoyment, teaches them something new, as well as being the perfect activity for some bonding time.
Even at a young age, just by listening and interacting with new words, sounds, and actions will contribute to helping their memory.
