With more than 250 songs, rhymes, and chants, this book is a fun way to enrich toddlers' language experiences. By incorporating songs, chants, and rhymes into the classroom, teachers provide opportunities for children to develop every aspect of reading readiness and literacy. While the selections themselves are a great way to enhance the development of literacy skills, the follow-up suggestions for story time, outdoor play, music and movement, and literacy extension activities will be a sure-fire hit with this age group.

Each selection is accompanied by:

  • Related rhymes, songs, and chants
  • Follow-up language enrichment activities, including ideas for developing oral language and phonological awareness
  • Learning center ideas
  • Outdoor play and/or music and movement activities
  • Story time suggestions
