Mexican children's songs

Can't Post | Private Reply
I would like to learn to sing/play some well-known, easy kid songs. I hear that Cri-Cri's music is well known and might fit that description and would like to know about other singers or songs that would be good to get familiar with. Any ideas of web sites with free words/chords/music? I play autoharp, so guitar tabs work just fine if I know the melody already...

See the "Developing an Ear for Spanish" thread. Go for the boleros, not the children's songs.

Well...for developing an ear for Spanish, I agree--go for the boleros. But if you want to learn children's songs to sing for children (for example, for sing-alongs at an orphanage), Cri-Cri is the gold standard. Youtube will give you lots of examples of his delightful music.

To start, I highly recommend "La Marcha de las Letras" and "La Muñeca Fea". Utterly charming and 99.9% of Mexican children will be able to sing along.
