Old MacDonald Had a Farm Nursery Rhyme


Songs composed and written for children have both entertainment and educational functions. Songs for children often aim to teach children about culture, basic facts and fundamental skills. Exposing children to songs and involving them with singing are extremely beneficial. Singing can help children develop their vocabulary, build their coordination skills, improve their emotion expressions, and strengthen their memories. Parents singing together with children can also boost the bond in the family.
