Hispanic culture has a rich tradition of poetry and music. Here I’ve gathered our favorite Spanish folk songs for children , the ones you just can’t miss.
There are many, many versions of each of these songs. If you are looking for a CD to listen to in the car, we love the albums of Spanish folk songs for children from Jose Luis Orozco: De colores and other Latin American Folk Songs.
Don’t forget that I have lots of posts for songs in Spanish on many other themes, as well!
1. Los pollitos dicen, pío pío, pío
2. Arroz con leche
I like the drawings in the first one better, but the lyrics are what we sing in the second.
3. Cucú cucú cantaba la rana
4. De colores
Love both versions!
5. Que llueva
6. La cucaracha
7. Pin pón
8. Naranja dulce
9. Un elefante se balanceaba
10. El barquito chiquito
11. Al la nanita nana
