Stinky Cake by Carole Peterson

Stinky CakeRhymes are fun to sing and say with your child. Singing rhymes also helps your child hear words being broken up into smaller sounds, which is part of phonological awareness. Try singing “Icky Sticky and Ooey Gooey” from the CD Stinky Cake by Carole Peterson. This song lets you guess the rhyming word coming up in the song. You can even try to make up new verses at home just by finding words that rhyme!
