Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Singing lullabies is a lovely way to bond with your baby. Even if you don’t know all the words you can hum or ‘la-la’ them. As you sing to and cuddle your baby you both will enjoy this special time.

Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are!

Enjoy this more with Comfort, Play & Teach™:


  • Wrap your baby in a soft blanket and gently rock him back and forth as you look into his eyes and sing to him. He will love the special attention as he is serenaded.
  • Sing to your baby during bathing, feeding and diapering routines. She will associate a loving and familiar melody and the sound of your voice with these daily interactions with you.



  • As you sing each line of the song, substitute a silly sound for the last word, or give your baby a kiss on the head, or tummy or foot. These playful interactions will make the song more interesting for him!
  • You can demonstrate actions for this song to your baby, wiggling your fingers to make twinkling stars and forming them into a diamond shape. This will focus her attention on your fingers and invite her to play with you.



  • Sing this lovely lullaby to your baby as you stand by a window gazing at a starry sky. You can talk to your baby and introduce new words to him like night, sky, stars, moon, dark….
  • Play a recording of the song so that your baby can hear how it sounds performed on various musical instruments. This will introduce her to different sounds made by instruments like piano, flute, violin, pan pipes, harp, xylophone…
