Singing helps children practice hearing and making different sounds. Playing around with sounds allows children be able to hear the different sounds that make up words. As you read All Aboard the Work Choo-Choo by Carol Roth, have your child repeat the refrain “All Aboard! to work…Choo-choo! Chug-a-chug-a-choo-choo-choo!” It can almost become sing-songy!
