Do you have a favorite lullaby growing up? Lullabies are beautiful, soothing tunes perfect for little ones to listen right before bedtime. The English lullaby Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star is one of the oldest and most known ones. Also, it's perfect for the youngest English learners!

This famous cradle song for children started out as a poem. The poem is called “The Star”. It was written by Jane Taylor and published in 1806 in a rhymes book for children. Later, it was sung following the tune of a lovely French song for children.

Throughout history, this lullaby has remained almost true to the original. However, there are many adaptions around the world.

In this version, your child will accompany the four Lingokids friends, Lisa the Cat, Cowy the Cow, Billy the Chick, and Elliot the Panda, while singing around a campfire. Lisa and Cowy are playing the triangle, Billy is playing a keyboard guitar, and Elliot is mostly dancing! The four are singing a song dedicated to a bright star that’s way up in the sky.

As they sing and dance, they get the chance to befriend the star that lives in the blue sky. Together, they go on an adventure traveling across town: overlooking the houses , the trees , and the lake .

Thanks to this song’s simple rhythm and lyrics, even babies can take advantage of it. You can incorporate it into your child’s bedtime routine and help them fall asleep while listening to this lovely story.

By doing this, your little one will get used to English pronunciation, familiarizing themselves with how the words sound. This is a huge step for a child’s overall cognitive development and language skills.

Even for toddlers or children in preschool age, this song can be a great aid to learn English as a second or foreign language. The music and rhythm of the song will make them remember the vocabulary more easily and naturally.

Encourage your little one to sing the song with you and have a fun time together. Once you’ve listened to it a few times, watch the video together and start a conversation about it.

You can start by asking your child which one is their favorite part of the video. Is it the star or the campfire? Then, talk about the different objects that can be seen there, like the trees or the houses, to practice shapes and colors in English .

Ask simple questions in English to your little one such as: “What color is the sky?”, “What color are the trees?”, or “How many clouds do you see?”. These will help them learn new words and it’s a good start to learn the numbers in English .

Enjoy this classic at home and help your little one improve English skills with music!

“Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” Lyrics

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

In the dark blue sky, you keep,
While you through my window peep,
And you never shut your eye,
Till the sun is in the sky,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
