Baby rhymes are rhymes that are written for babies. These rhymes are comparatively simple, consisting of short lines, short stanzas and rhyme words at the end of most or all lines. The baby rhymes are usually used by caregivers such as parents, grandparents, and babysitters to calm the baby and to teach the baby simple words and concepts. Some baby rhymes are part of simple childrens games that ask the baby to interact with the caregiver merely by moving their head or hands. Baby rhymes are often also nursery rhyme songs, although they are sometimes simpler versions. Parents frequently only sing or chant one to two stanzas of longer set of nursery rhyme lyrics to a young baby.
