‘French Songs for Kids’ is a lovely selection of French folk songs and nursery rhymes for people to enjoy and sing along to to help them develop a good French accent.
The physical CD includes a 4-page booklet with the words in French and English.
Each song also has a separate translation track with the words clearly spoken in French and English.
The CD is divided into two parts:
Tracks 1-7: The songs on their own
Tracks 8-21: Each song preceded by its spoken word translation track in French and English.
It is best to start with track numbers 8-21, but once you have listened to these tracks a few times, you will then be able to move on to tracks 1-7 and just enjoy the songs on their own.
Included in the selection is ‘Promenons-nous dans les bois’ which is the French equivalent of ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?‘ With its interesting sound effects, this song is great fun for children to join in with. The snoring miller and braying donkey are also interesting, and then there are some lovely folk tunes.
