From the time we are in our mother’s wombs, music begins to play a large role in our development. Like a sponge, children are influenced by everything in their surroundings, including the music they listen to. For a long time, some kids ' TV utilized the blend of words, music, and quick paced activity to accomplish learning. Many parents worry about what their children see and what type of music their children listen to. However, as children develop, parents give careful consideration to the music and features that catch their children’s interests and captures their attention.

Stories about children have always captivated humans young and old. From poems and short books written for children about children to autobiographies written about childhood for adults, youth has always been a fascinating topic. Perhaps this is because childhood brings a unique innocence and magic to any story. Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees and Leo Tolstoy’s Childhood both detail scenes from the protagonist’s childhood. In the first chapter of The Secret Life of Bees, Kidd describes her protagonist’s living father, deceased mother, and how they relate to the bees she becomes fascinated with one summer.
They gobbled down the marshmallow immediately. The rest struggled hard to resist eating it. They covered their eyes, talked to themselves, sang, played games, even tried to go to sleep. The preschoolers who were able to wait were rewarded with two marshmallows when the researcher returned. Twelve to fourteen years later the same kids were re-evaluated.
Children are known for stretching the truth in stories and believing everything they here from someone that is older than them. That is some reasons why a child narrator can be an advantage for readers to understand the story better and the different perspective in situations. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Scout a 6 year old girl shares her perspective on how she sees things at such a young age in Maycomb Alabama with friends like Dill and her brother Jem. Scout deals with the affect of a court case on her family and learns more about her scary neighbor Boo Radley. In the book Scout shows the advantages of being a child narrator by sharing experiences with readers, learning how to say her thoughts, and being nonjudgmental throughout the book.

In most versions of “Little Red Riding Hood”, Red goes off to her sick grandmother and wears a red hood. The fact that Red doesn’t respond back to Bugs while he’s still talking indicates the fact that it’s a monologue. Another feature in the poem is the language used. While reading the original “Little Red Riding Hood”, you can tell that the language used in the text is meant for children. In Seibles’ poem, he uses a language to give a humorous appeal to an older audience.
From the overtly moralistic original oriented poetry that may well have been handed down as folk tales across the generations. Poetry is now more heavily concerned with the entertainment of children, using playfulness that children hopefully take into the playgrounds and share with their peers. Encouraging them to experience and experiment with language and to wonder, as Jane Taylor hoped. Michael Rosen however does not take poetry in just a light hearted form, he takes verse and explores realistic subjects frequently taking the form of unfinished conversations and adopting the voice of the child. (Styles, 2009) Poetry uses its rhythmic patterns to make it memorable and easy to read, setting up expectations for the reader, these expectations can be conformed to in such poetry as ‘The Story Of Little Suck-A-Thumb’ or broken in nonsense poetry to add to the humour it conveys.
Cognitive development is the way a child learns, acquires knowledge and interacts with the surrounding environment. We have to keep in mind that different cognitive skills acquired as a child meet certain developmental milestones. During cognitive development, I prefer to do an activity that she likes to play, such as listening to nursery rhymes. I would sing "Old Macdonald Had A Farm" which to helps her remember the names of the animals and identify the different sounds each animal would make. She will begin to learned and acquired knowledge of which sounds relate to the animals, and eventually she would start to sing along herself.
Let the children have fun exploring what costume they would like to wear & play time to explore the differences, colours, jewels etc on each costume. Have them sit down & discuss the differences by writing a few things down about the costume, which culture it came from, are they colourful or do they have special jewels, head pieces etc. I think this is an exciting group activity to explore differences & educate the children at the same time! *Perhaps if their appears to be issues between children having a group discussion about differences can help alleviate the issues & help the children understand these differences. Books about culture, religions, disabilities etc can be a way of showing a group of children different elements to each child’s life & the differences between individuals.
Disney movie even have a little profanity in them with A Christmas Carol has "hell" "ass" (*used to describe a donkey*) ”. You can’t keep profanity away from people. The last reason is for a blunt dialogue about rape, maybe the author shouldn’t have put that in their but everybody has to learn about the birds and the bees sometime.
