Sweet Songs to Sing to Baby

Posted on: April 14, 2016

 

Two dear friends of mine just brought home their sweet baby girl.  Singing is good for everybody and it is fun and engaging.  Singing together creates bonds between people and it is something to do when one is thinking, “What now?”  For these reasons, and so many others, I’m gathering this list of easy to sing, lovely little songs for them (and you, too) to warble to the baby.

The titles below are linked to posts which contain lyrics, printed music, and/or recordings to help learn the tunes.

As with all posts on this blog, the list is never complete.  Check in again sometime, there might be some new ditties to enjoy.
