Travel to faraway places with Kid Songs Around The World!

Whoever the children are in your life - your kids, your grandkids, your students, even yourself (in your heart) - Kid Songs Around The World is a wonderful way to help them experience other languages and cultures.

In Kid Songs Around The World we've gathered 100 of our favorite songs and rhymes from all the continents of the globe.

Each song includes the full text in the original language, with an English translation, and most include sheet music. All include links to web pages where you can listen to recordings, hear the tune or watch a video performance. Each includes a beautiful illustration.

Many have commentary sent to us by our correspondents who write about the history of the songs and what they meant in their lives.

Learning about the culture of other places helps develop empathy, teaches tolerance and respect, and can dispel misconceptions and break stereotypes.

Kid Songs Around The World can help the children in your life to nurture meaningful relationships in classrooms and playgrounds, and can open up discussions about family ancestry and heritage.
