Songs for kids: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

January 2020: Audio added to help more kids learn, with thanks to Jackie Buffalo and her granddaughter Emerson Mitsuing (who was only four when the recording was made, but sure sounds proud and confident).

wāsē, wāsē acahkosis, Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
tānisi ē-is-āyāyan. How I wonder what you are.
āyāyan ispimīhk ē-akōciniyan, Up above the world so high,
tāpiskōc sōniyāw asiniy. Like a diamond in the sky.
wāsē, wāsē acahkosis, Twinkle, twinkle little star,
tānisi ē-is-āyāyan. How I wonder what you are.

    I love that you have the translations for kids’ songs. I’m wondering how to access the audio format so I can learn the pronunciation of the songs along with my kids.

      What do you have for audio kids songs?

      • Arden Ogg says:

        Hi Ronnie – You will find audio for many of the kids’ songs included here, but you’ll need to look through the various links. Our collection is based on what we can find, who gives us permission to share their recordings. As a not-for-profit organization that offers most resources at no charge, we’re not able to pay for the use of materials.
