100 Songs With Sheet Music And Links To Recordings
Whoever the children are in your life - your kids, your grandkids, your students, even yourself (in your heart) - Kid Songs Around The World is a wonderful way to help them experience other languages and cultures.
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.
All include links to web pages where you can listen to recordings, hear the tune or watch a video performance.
Each includes a beautiful illustration.
Many have commentary sent to us by our correspondents who write about the history of the songs and what they've meant in their lives.
We hope this book will help foster a love of international children's songs!
This is a downloadable e-book, which you will gain access to immediately. (It is not a physical book.)
