Good show!

How young is he? 2,3,4?

If so, sit down with him, holding him on your lap, if he likes, and do fingerplays. (Google 'fingerplays'). Or go to the library and look for fingerplays.

Fingerplays are the good old rhymes of yore - 'Here's the church & here is the steeple' 'Two little blackbirds sat on a hill' etc

He will like it, and just like music, it will develop his sense of rhythm and rhyme.l

(Saw an article in the paper by a child psychologist. He said 'For today's children, love is spelled T-I-M-E.')
