Kids learn so much through songs! Not only do songs make learning fun, they also make it easier for kids to retain new information. I was thrilled to see so many of you grabbing the first two songs in our preschool song series. So far we’ve released the 10 Little Snowflakes song and the This is the Way Winter song. As we move into February let’s use this I Love You Preschool Valentine’s Day Song to help kids count to 10, practice to recognizing rhyming words, and learn a fun song to sing to the special people in their lives.
