Make sure to warm up your vocal chords before you visit this very special event dedicated to babies! We will be introducing new songs that you can sing with your baby at the Pretend City Amphitheater. Singing is a form of play, especially if you sing songs with hand motions. Today we’ll help you and your baby learn the patterns and intonation of language. Rhyming songs help babies hear small differences in sounds – a skill they will need when they learn to read. Visit all the exhibits for more activities that will help you play with a purpose.
