Overview

Most parents think of music as a way to help their children sleep or soothe their nerves when upset, but the truth is that every time you sing to your child, something incredibly important is happening. Singing is one of the most natural experiences to share with your children and now we know even more through scientific research about the power of music to assist in your child’s cognitive and physical development. Written by Dr Anita Collins, The Lullaby Effect guides you through the research, challenges a few myths and provides you with some creative ideas that will help you use sound and song to help your little one thrive.

Dr Anita Collins is an award-winning educator, researcher and writer in the field of brain development and music learning.
