Songs for kids: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

For my favourite Tiger Monkeys and all their friends at the Andrews Street Family Centre, and for all of our friends at the Win Gardner Stay and Play Family Literacy Program.

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.

    Sorry – there’s no audio with this one.

      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.
