Why do children like rhymes and rhyming stories?

The most enjoyable and occupying task of the playschool or nursery is singing and dancing with rhymes. Rhymes don’t need any props to set a scene; they depend on the sound of the voice reciting the language to stimulate play. Some may be accompanied by physical actions, which help to understand and memorize the rhyme. Nursery rhymes are fun, children love them. Rhymes are child-friendly means of introducing children to the wonder of narratives and the imaginative potential that the stories found in books can offer. Songs and rhymes for young children have been passed down for generations. Illustrating Rhyming books is an altogether a different topic to be discussed.

“Experts in literacy and child development have discovered that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they’re four years old, they’re usually among the best readers by the time they’re eight.” [Fox, M. (2001). Reading Magic. San Diego, CA: Harcourt.]

Children love to act out the rhymes as they say them, dramatizing the actions of the characters with their whole bodies or using their hands and fingers. When children are encouraged by an adult to display their creativity in an atmosphere that is free of criticism, and due to which their self strengthened and confidence get increased, which can also help shy children to loosen out and mix up with the peers.

When children recite rhymes and sing songs, they learn new words and learn how to pronounce them along with the modulation of their voices. While rhyming they can also practice pitch and volume. They learn to pronounce words easily by saying them over and over again and by practicing them without effort or the pressures of criticism.

Rhyming children books allow children to enjoy their studies with lots of fun and that as well without having any pressure of criticism. If you know about any good rhyming book for children, please write about it here along with your views how you remember rhyming from your school days and how it effects the children.
