Research shows that music provides cognitive and developmental benefits to baby, toddler, and preschool-aged children. Not only is it fun, music is a great way to bond with your child and just put you both in a great mood. By exposing your child to music, you are helping them build motor skills, practice self-expression and even help them learn sounds and meanings of words. Music also helps strengthen memory skills. Try to make music a part of your everyday routine. Here is a helpful list of five Pandora playlists the entire family can enjoy.
