I think it’s a great idea to introduce babies to their first sing-along number song (the digits) in a similar way that babies have a sing-along song for the ABCs, The ABC Song. Children usually hear, see, sing and learn the ABCs before starting kindergarten. Here is a number song called ‘The Digit Song’ that will get children started with this idea: http://www.numbersong.com
