Product Description

Product Description

Putumayo Kids' French Playground is a musical rendez-vous of fun French and French Creole songs that will delight children of all ages. French Playground reflects the rich variety of Francophone music. It features 12 songs by artists from France, the Caribbean, Africa and Quebec. Bilingual families and children learning French or English will enjoy the fact that the complete lyrics for each song are printed in both languages. As with all Putumayo CDs, French Playground features full-color liner notes with artist and cultural information. The CD is a great resource for language and social studies teachers. The artists on French Playground include some of the most popular children’s performers in their respective countries, along with successful pop artists such as Pascal Parisot, Thomas Fersen, Tryo and Ariane Moffat whose songs were selected for their all-ages appeal. Musical styles range from French chanson and Gypsy jazz to the twoubadou music of Haiti and the rootsbending style of Triton, who is from Mauritius, an island off the east coast of Africa.

I can't fault this CD, it is fantastic. I have a 6 year old, a 4 year old and a 2 year old. This album was on repeat play for months and the kids have picked up and started singing along to the tunes, which are a lot of fun - very catchy and contemporary and original but very french in character. The songwords and translations are provided in a little booklet so you can learn about the songs and their meanings, and there is a little explanation about the artist. I have bought this several times over, and given it away as a gift to friends.

Learning French in school or pre-school is all very well, but to really feel the french language, you can't beat a cracking singalong, and this is a sheer joy to singalong to :-) Learning languages comes easiest when it is fun, and on that level, this gets 5* all round.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic CD! 3 Feb 2008
By A. King
Format:Audio CD
It's full of well-arranged, catchy tunes. It doesn't outstay its welcome (just over half an hour) but does stay in your head!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic antedote to wheels on the bus! 1 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
This CD is great in the car - my 2 year old and 8 year old both love it inspite of the fact that it is all in french. There is a translation in the CD leaflet so you can find out what the songs mean. Really catchy songs. Buy it!!

Those songs are not only for children but can also be shared with parents. It's a very nice "compilation" of french artist. Fast delivery. Thanks.

This is a collection of French songs from around the world. Although it's designed for children, adults will enjoy them too. The lyrics come with the CD, which is great for picking out what's actually being sung. Learning to sing the songs properly will help the listener improve their French and kids will pick up words without really thinking about it - for example from just listening to the first song, you'll find out that "chatouiller" means "to tickle"... Well worth the money.
