With the Mother Goose on the Loose app users can interact with and listen to classic nursery rhymes and songs. Mother Goose nursery rhymes are a great way to help kids learn to rhyme (a skill that is needed for learning to read). This app can help add even more fun to traditional rhymes. The simple and colorful format engages kids and lets them move the pieces around on a virtual flannel board. Listen to the rhyme or song, play with the “flannel” pieces and tap the sound effect buttons along to the beat of Row, Row, Row Your Boat, Hickory Dickory Dock, Jack and Jill and more! Sing and play with your child as you listen to this free app available from the Apple app store.
