Rhyme and rhythm, both critical aspects of language, are features of these traditional songs and research into learning suggests that exposure to rhyme and rhythm during the early childhood years greatly facilitates children's success in learning to read. The nursery rhymes and traditional songs on this release are part of the literary, cultural, historical and social heritage of the English speaking peoples. - Kathleen Warren EdD, MA (hons) LASA, FTCL, teacher, adjudicator and early childhood and drama consultant and writer for The Wigqles.
