Everyone counts fingers and toes with their babies. There are counting songs and chants and fingerplays in so many different languages. It is just something we do with our babies and small children.
Counting gives us a sense of rhythm. Our baby feels the sensation as we touch each finger and each toe during the chant or song. It gives us a fun and intimate connection between the two of us.
