Sing a Song
On the treetop
When the wind blows
The cradle will rock
If the bough breaks
The cradle will fall
But mama will catch you
Cradle and all
Sesame Street: Andrea Bocelli's Lullaby to Elmo
Read two books to your child before bed. Ask your child about their favorite part of each one. A nightly routine of storytime before bed helps children to feel secure and loved, while asking for their opinion about the reading reinforces that this is a time focused on them and that their opinions matter.
