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.
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!

Are these lines are considered to be a saying? Or is it (part of) a verse?
Thanks for sharing it is really very moving.

Hi Tinker Jack,
I would consider this to be a quotation. It was written by Horace Mann (1796 – 1859), an American educational reformer. It doesn’t seem to be part of another verse.

If so, how come you did not indicate the author in the entry? This is the way you always do!

I felt it was easier to “hear” the words with no text around it.
