Children’s Rhymes and Poems in German
German language can be enjoyable and beautiful, just listen to some children’s songs about a bunny rabbit, a horse or a kitten. Poems and songs in German are the best way to introduce this wonderful language to the little learners. German songs and poems are easy to memorize, so your child will be happy to learn them and demonstrate great progress very fast!
We use a lot of active games in our German class, that makes learning the language and culture fun. If you child finds the song about the weather and a hat catchy, you will end up singing it all over and over again yourself!
All of these and many more rhymes and poems for children in German are used in our German classes for children from 1 year old.

Poems in German with translation into English help you understand the meaning of each line of the poem. An English translation of German rhymes for children does not mean that German children’s poems are translated word by word. A literary English translation and pictures help you get the general idea and message of the children’s rhyme rather than the exact meaning of each German word.
