Hello. My name is Monica Poole. I am a bilingual kindergarten teacher living in a small town in east Texas. All of my students are Hispanic from various parts of central Mexico (Queretaro, Guanajuato).
I am so glad that I found your website. I had been looking for authentic Spanish nursery rhymes, and yours are great. I appreciate you making the sheet music available as well, for us that don’t know the tunes!
Keep up the awesome work! Please e-mail me anything new that you run across – especially from Spain or Argentina.

Thanks for writing! We’ll be adding some Spanish children’s songs with mp3 recordings to our Mama Lisa’s World Spain Pages within the next week or so. So be sure to check out the link.
We’d be thrilled if you’d like to send us any songs from Mexico and/or any recordings of your class singing any songs.

Looking for the entire words to an old song “I’m a Little Chinese Doll from across the sea. where the lovely lotus blooms neath a cherry tree. Paper dragons you will meet on a Chinese New Year, Winding up and down the street on a Chinese New Year. Evil Spirits cannot stay whent eh dragons on his way firecrackers POP all day on a Chinese New Year…”” Anyone ever hear this song and is there more of it…Please let me know I need it for my little grandaughter to sing …..She so loves it but we think there is more.. Thanks for the help..
