Our Top 5 Favorite French Songs for Kids:

  1. “J’ai un gros nez rouge” : This delightful nursery rhyme introduces body and clothing vocabulary. Translated as “I Have a Big Red Nose,” this song is an engaging way for children to learn French words related to the human body and clothing.
  2. “1,2,3 nous irons au bois” : An engaging rhyme teaching numbers, making French learning fun for little ones. Translated as “1,2,3 We Will Go to the Woods,” this song helps children learn and practice counting in French.
  3. “Au clair de la lun” : This 18th-century French lullaby, translated as “By the Light of the Moon”, endures as a beloved classic. It narrates the story of a boy searching for light to study in the dark, seeking advice from his friend Pierrot. Employing present tense and first/third-person dialogue, this song facilitates conversational skill development for language learners.
  4. “Une souris verte” : “A Green Mouse,” enjoys widespread recognition in French-speaking areas. It playfully describes catching a green mouse that becomes a “hot snail.” Teaching present, imperfect, and imperative tenses, it forms a sturdy grammatical foundation through repeated speech and dialogue.
  5. “Tête, épaules, genoux et pieds” : Translated as “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Feet” the French version of this popular children’s song differs slightly – introducing “Feet” instead of “Toes.” This song is a fantastic tool for learning body parts, fostering vocabulary development and enhancing language acquisition. One Third Stories also includes a version of this classic in our 5th story box, Elliot!
