Children's songs are a natural way to play and communicate with children around the world. A child can understand his or her world better and share emotions while singing with friends and caretakers. The purpose of this presentation is to share the findings of the author;s research at the Diaz-Ayala Music Collection at FIU about Caribbean children's songs. The talk will emphasize songs for preschoolers and their possibilities of being adapted for instrumental playing as well as for family-based music education programs. Finding Cuban children's songs has not been an easy task. They should be shared in the same manner as other forms of popular music.
