French and Spanish songs for children
This collection of traditional French and Spanish songs and nursery rhymes mark the beginning of A Green Mouse.
They were chosen for a children’s music group, and then recorded.
The songs have lots of repetition, actions and English translation tracks to help children to hear and pronounce the words, and enjoy singing along to some traditional French and Spanish tunes.
‘Une souris verte’ (a green mouse) is one of the French songs.
In its very title there are two sounds which English speakers find hard: The ‘U’ from ‘une’ and the ‘R’ from ‘veRte’.
It is well worth encouraging children to listen and join in with these useful sounds early in life.
The songs are available on: itunes
