(A Rhyme to Kiss Your Baby)
A kiss when I wake in the morning,
A kiss when I go to bed,
A kiss when I burn my fingers,
A kiss when I bump my head.
A kiss when my bath begins,
A kiss when my bath is over,
My mamma is as full of kisses
As a field is full of clover.

4. Early Literacy Tip: Love Helps a Child Grow
"Scientific studies have shown that children develop bestwhen they have a strong, positive relationshipwith at nurturing adult."
--The Early Literacy Kit by Betsy Diamant and Saroj Ghoting
In Episode 3, the Early Literacy Tip we discussed was about LOVE - how important being loved by a caring adult is to a child's well being and ability to flourish as they grow.
Being loved,hugged and kissed, helps children to physically grow, but also to develop their thinking, comprehension and burgeoning intellect. When a child is loved he or she is truly free to be who they are fully capable of being.
