Music –– and more specifically, rhythmic ability –– may help babies learn languages.
A new study from the University of Washington had a group of babies listen to children's music. During the music, parents moved the babies to the beats of a song.
A different group of babies didn't listen to music. Instead, they played with toys that still got them moving –– just not to a rhythm.
