International storytime

You would think that singing songs with animal noises in storytime would be easy, right? Not so much in a bilingual environment, in which a French cow goes "meuh" (a subtle difference) and a Frenc duck goes "coin".

Thank heavens there is now a table of animal sounds to back me up.

Now, all together, "Old Macdonald had a farm...."

Felts made by me!


  1. Love, love, LOVE! Must have one (or at least visit).

  2. i agree...nothing obvious or universal when it comes to animal sounds! i remember struggling with the German i can refer to your table haha! have a GREAT week-end :)

  3. Laura, you can visit the felts anytime. I should introduce you to them next time you're at RI.

    Kristina, eek! I can't imagine learning German animal sounds!!!
