There are endless variations of the ABC song, which will help you keep it fresh (for baby and for you!).
The “ABC Song” is one of the most popular English alphabet songs in North America. Sung to the tune of “Baa Baa Black Sheep” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” it’s also super simple to remember. Here are the ABC Song lyrics:
W and X
Y and Zee
Now I know my “ABCs”
Next time won’t you sing with me?
Though some kids songs are incessant earworms that you probably never want to hear again (we’re looking at you, “Baby Shark”), singing with kids is a wonderful way to help them learn new things, like the sounds and meanings of words, and develop their memory skills. Turn it into a dance party and not only are you having fun but you’re also developing their motor skills and self-expression.
If you’re looking to expand your roster of baby and toddler songs, try classics like Zoom, Zoom, Zoom, I’m a Little Teapot, Round the Garden, Row Your Boat and Five Little Ducks.
