One of the oldest and best ways to teach kids languages, updated for the 21st century

Grownups have been using simple songs to teach young children the rudiments of languages since long before people danced sur le pont d'Avignon. Now the Let's Sing and Learn series, CD Editions brings that tried-and-true method up-to-date for today's modern kid. Each book/CD set contains collection of 20 original songs that combine catchy melodies with simple, cleverly-disguised lessoning vocabulary and expression.

Written by accomplished songwriter-linguists, the songs cover a variety of subjects, including greetings, colors, counting, the alphabet, the days of the month, relationships, and more. And most importantly, the songs are easy to learn and fun to sing, making them the perfect medium for introducing children, ages three to six, to the words, accents, and rhythms of other languages.

Each book/CD set includes:

  • 20 original tunes covering an array of everyday subjects
  • A CD recording of the songs that provides a model of proper pronunciation and rhythm
  • Simple musical scores that parents and teachers can use to accompany young learners
  • English translations for each song and suggested actions

My 3-year-old daughter loves to listen to this cd during our long commutes! Within probably a week she was singing along in french. Also, I really appreciate the themed songs (transportation, body parts) which introduce a large amount of related vocabulary.

Sing & Learn French sheet music w/ CD. The musician has a flair for engaging kids (and parents) in learning language through music. Perfect way to capture attention of a young child with short attention span but a love of dance. Could also be used for older kids learning to read sheet music. Dynamic twist on Frère Jacques that son listens to over and over! Other songs are highly entertaining (not the oft-heard mundane) and teach lessons about rhyme, alliteration, animal names, etc.
