Nursery rhymes are amazing

There are lots of supportive child development practices that have been passed down from generation to generation. For example, we've been singing songs such as Round And Round The Garden with babies for years. I wonder, though, if everyone that has sung this song knew that the circle motions made on a baby’s hands helps them to map out their skin and therefore supports their brain development?
