 ’Le Poussin Piou’ Song…


We have already posted the Italian version of this song, it’s brilliant!!  It exsits in lots of languages too!  This is a great way of learning the animals and the noises that they make.  Believe it or not the dog doesn’t say “woof-woof” in French, he says “ouaf ouaf”  The cow says “meuh”…Watch out for the ending, poor poussin!
