by Heide Mende-Kurz Rhymes that comfort, calm, dispel unhappiness, prevent a tantrum or create joy from 2 years of age. The rhymes by Gretel Pastetel show activities that the toddler experiences the whole day. Preparing food, eating, falling asleep, shopping, playing in the garden and in the yard. The rhyme spoken by the mother works wonders: it can comfort, calm down, dispel unhappiness, prevent a tantrum or create joy. The nursery rhyme is of great importance for the infant's speech development. It familiarises him or her with the quality of vowels and consonants. It is not so much the content of the words of the rhymes, some of which date back to the Middle Ages, that makes them so valuable, but their outstanding speech physiological and rhythmic power. They are a training ground for lips, tongue, teeth and palate. Parents and educators should recite the rhymes to the little ones very slowly and expressively, pointing to the corresponding picture motifs and imitating the activities shown. Through constant repetition, the child gradually acquires healthy breathing and speaking skills through hearing, moving, seeing, touching and balancing. Only a clearly articulated, rhythmic language guarantees the necessary ventilation, strengthening and harmonization of the mouth, nose, throat and ear area, which even helps to prevent colds. Unfortunately, the electronically generated word has often displaced the self-spoken nursery rhyme. On the other hand, the rhyme spoken by the mother herself works wonders: it can comfort, calm down, dispel unhappiness, prevent a tantrum, generate joy, etc. Much more often, parents and educators should accompany the activities in the children's everyday life with rhymes.
