These songs are favorites of Chinese children. They are songs children sang when the author visited schools from Hong Kong to Beijing. The purpose of this book is to share these wonderful songs and to help teachers, parents and caregivers bridge the cultures. Great care has been given to ensure the authenticity of the songs. The melodies are unchanged from the original melodies. The English texts were developed on site to ensure that the translations mean the same as the original texts. Supplementary notes describe their cultural settings.
