Check out this free app from Raising Children Network. It us a great way to introduce more music to your child's routine.

Music is strongly connected to language and cognitive development. Music helps us to make and retrieve long term memories. Children who sing have better reading, math, and thinking skills.

This app can help you sing with your children if you feel a bit shy about belting out a favorite nursery rhyme. For older children, play the oldies station or the Christian music station and teach them to sing along with your favorites. No one has to be embarrassed in the car - or at least everyone is a captive audience.

Think how important it is to have faith songs tucked away in long term memory. They will reappear at just the right time.

Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. (James 5: 13b, ESV)
