MY FIRST ARMENIAN SONGBOOK
by Karenn Chutjian Presti
In this unique songbook, English-language songs are presented along with their Armenian translations in order to celebrate both traditions. This comprehensive edition includes original translations of traditional songs from English to Armenian and one from Armenian to English. The book is ideal for children who are learning Armenian or are being exposed to Armenian culture. The rich English texts and the colorful original illustrations make it appealing to children of all backgrounds.
For those who cannot read Armenian, a pronunciation guide with a full transliteration of each song is included at the end of the book. The enclosed CD contains all the tracks in the Armenian language. The original arrangements are for voice and piano, in a folk/classical tradition specifically designed to be educational in terms of both language acquisition and musical taste to babies and children.
