Singalong songs are a great way to develop reading, listening and singing skills. Just 10 minutes of reading together at bedtime, or singing at bath time can make a huge difference.
This lively animation of the children’s book The Animal Boogie by Debbie Harter takes you on a journey with some of the animals living in the jungle. Maybe you have a pet at home you can add to the song.
Watch the video and try singing along. Encourage your child to join in with actions and words.
Good to know
Songs and rhymes are especially good for children as the rhythms and repetitive language help them learn how to talk.
