The songs my girls learn at school are so cute — they are the same ones that my mom sang to me when I was little. The problem is: my girls are very enthusiastic singers, but slightly tone-deaf just like myself. They have also inherited my inability to remember the words to a whole song — I only ever remember the chorus and then make the rest up to cover my path.
Entertaining as this is, it gets a bit tedious at some point, especially when all 3 of us are doing it. So yesterday I picked up the sweetest little book called: “Les Chansons De Toujours“, illustrated by the master of retro-children’s illustrations, Alain Grée. This book contains the lyrics to most of the famous French children’s songs and comes with a CD so you don’t start singing “Oh Clair De La Lune” to the tune of “Frère Jacques”.
