Babies in the Groove

A recent study by MacMaster University psychologist Laurel Trainor suggests that babies learn to differentiate rhythms when they are just a few months old. It seems to be based on the way rhythm is used in play by the baby's parents and caregivers, so this weekend I plan on dancing around with my son, and maybe a toy drum isn't the worst idea in the world. We could keep it at his grandparents' house!


hmmmm....which grandparents'house ...? :)

The dancing sounds like a great idea though.
