3. Jack and Jill
4. London Bridge Is Falling Down
5. Mary Had a Little Lamb

Answer
Hello

This is not my area of expertise but it would seem that these popular rhymes have a cadence that is easy to follow and simply lyrics that are easy to recall, which teaches the children to use various cognitive skills, yes.

Thanks for asking,

Expertise

I can answer questions about pop music from the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. I can help track down hard to find songs based on lyric fragments or other minimal information. I was an expert in this field but due to a family situation, was away from e-mail for a couple of weeks and forgot to put in a vacation listing with AllExperts.

Experience

I have been answering questions for this site for a few years. It would be nice to be reinstated. I have no idea how many questions I have answered but many people have written to me to say how I have touched their lives by helping them locate a song that is important to them or a loved one.

Education/Credentials
I am a college graduate.
