A GREEN MOUSE recordings of traditional French and Spanish songs have been produced to help young children develop valuable listening and speaking skills early in life. They are a selection of nursery rhymes and lullabies which fit well together for enjoyable listening practice:
Many of the songs have actions which also help to develop coordination. The songs were recorded for a music group, for young children, accompanied by their parent/carer, to join in with the actions and gradually pick up the songs just as they do in English music groups.
Listen to them as often as possible and the words will become more familiar. There is lots of repetition, the melodies will help the words to sink in , and before long children should be singing along without even realising.
The songs provide total immersion in French and Spanish, but separate translation tracks in part two of album, make them very accessible to those with no prior knowledge of French or Spanish.
