French and Spanish songs for children
These traditional French and Spanish songs and nursery rhymes mark the beginning of A Green Mouse, a collection that was put together for a children’s music group, and then recorded.
The songs have lots of repetition, actions and English translation tracks for parents and teachers to learn and sing along to with young children to help them hear and pronounce French and Spanish sounds, and enjoy 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.
