The Baby’s Handbook includes 21 popular nursery rhyme songs. Black and white illustrations are essential as a newborn’s retina can only distinguish between light and dark contrasts. Research shows that black and white images promote optic nerve growth, and help the visual part of a baby’s brain to thrive and develop by leaps and bounds. Included are Itsy Bitsy Spider, Hey Diddle Diddle, All Around the Mulberry Bush, I’m a Little Tea Pot, Hickety Pickety Bumble Bee, The Grand Old Duke of York, Ride a Cock-horse to Banbury Cross, Pat-a-cake, Mary had a Little Lamb, Do You Know the Muffin Man, Round and Round the Garden, Ring-a-round the Rosie, Aiken Drum, Old MacDonald had a Farm, Row Row Row Your Boat, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Hickory Dickory Dock, Star Light Star Bright, I've Been Working on the Railroad, and Rock-a-by Baby. Reading nursery rhymes helps to stimulate a babies interest in sounds, and to develop listening skills. Singing the nursery rhymes helps to develop early language skills, and strengthens the emotional bond between a parent and their baby. This book will help your baby grow into a thriving happy toddler.
