Countdown to Un-Shushed Relaunch: 3 Days!

  • Read or recite some nursery rhymes this week. They are silly, full of wonderful language, and allow children to hear the smaller parts of words.

As adults, nursery rhymes may not seem to make sense (and they usually don’t.) But we’ll bet you still remember all the words to Old Mother Hubbard. And maybe you remember a cow jumping over the moon and a dish running away with a spoon? It made you laugh then (and we’ll be honest, it makes us laugh now), and it taught you the difference between a dish and a spoon. Maybe it was even your first encounter with the word “fiddle.”


Nursery rhymes are an integral part of your child’s vocabulary and pronunciation development —and they’re tons of fun! So start remembering your old favorites and pass them down.

And don’t miss out on this week’s story time! We’re covering Feelings and all the crazy things that come with them.
