In Kid Songs Around The World we've gathered 100 of our favorite songs and rhymes from all the continents of the globe. (Over 350 pages!)
Each song includes the full text in the original language, with an English translation, and most include sheet music.

We hope this book will help foster a love of international children's songs!
