Research shows that singing and playing rhythmic games with your baby develops: Language, concentration, listening skills, emotional expressions, self confidence and, discipline. In fact there is likely no other natural activity that will benefit your baby' physical, intellectual and emotional growth more than the kind of activities and songs on this recording. From the moment of birth, every child enjoys music and vocalizing back. THE BABY RECORD provides parents and care givers with the raw materials to stimulate all these activities. Sung by Sesame Street's Bob McGrath and early childhood music educator Katharine Smithrim, THE BABY RECORD includes everything from bouncy rhymes to lullabies. The instructions are clear and the songs are sung simply, without accompaniment. Put the recording on, put the baby on your knee and off you go!
