Chinese Children’s Songs that We Absolutely Love at Our Home!

Singing is an easy and happy way to learn a language. Many of the songs below contain interesting stories in them. I am also in the process of adding artwork, lyrics, activity suggestios etc to accompany the songs. This way, your child will get more language experience with singing each song.
