Favourite Nursery Rhymes

Nursery rhymes are great for babies because they have repeated sounds and easy tunes. Nursery rhymes with actions are even better because babies can lean the actions and they're fun!

Can't remember any nursery rhymes? Here are some baby favourites, for you to sing with your baby.
This baby is older than 2-3 months old, so may be more developed than your baby, but listen to the rhymes and sing them to your baby.
