Today’s world is continually evolving into an increasingly global community. Music can be a fun way to introduce children to new languages and cultures. Visiting websites like Songs for Teaching or the Burnaby Public Library’s Embracing Diversity: Sharing Our Songs and Rhymes project is a great way to find songs and/or video in different languages with lyrics included.
KDL has a collection of world music with various CDs for children, like Around the World with Language Stars, that can be borrowed to help expose children to these new experiences. Stop into a branch to browse the children’s music section to try a new language today!
