Babies like to keep time

Researchers filmed a bunch of babies and toddlers listening to music and concluded that babies respond to rhythm more than do to human speech. They say the findings, "suggest that babies may be born with a predisposition to move rhythmically in response to music."

Ya think?

The best music ever for preschoolers is The Hall of the Mountain King, from Peer Gynt, by Grieg. Kids love to stomp around the room in time to the music.
