The remarkable range of sounds in the natural world can jumpstart your child’s budding concept of pitch. Talk about animals and the different sounds they make. Think of creatures that make high-pitched noises, such as a squeaking mouse or a chirping bird. Take turns imitating as many animal sounds as you can name. Do the same with animals that make low-pitched sounds, such as a quacking duck, a growling lion, or a mooing cow. Have fun making noises with your child. See if your child can sing a favorite nursery rhyme using animal sounds.
