Spanish Piggyback Songs

By Sonya Kranwinkel

Go to catalog

Easy songs with Spanish phrases are sung to childhood favorites: thus 'Pretty Yellow Chicks' in Spanish is sung to the tune of 'Skip to My Lou,' and 'Oh, What a Beautiful Morning' becomes 'Summer Butterflies.' Included are English translations and Spanish pronunciation keys: not included is sheet music, as this is a sing-aloud book for parents and kids.
