Little Minstrels New Zealand

I love music - I love kids! Little Minstrels all began with a few classes at a preschool in 2005. Since then it has grown into my part-time job and full-time passion, developing my own teaching programme and writing and recording songs to suit. These songs have stood the test of time and have been loved by the preschoolers I teach. I hope your chidren enjoy them too! ... more

When others are the same to me, We all live happily.

If I want to play with you, I softly ask, "May I play too?"
If you don't then we're still friends, We'll play together later.

I like to use my gentle hands, I like to use my words,
When others are the same to me, We all live happily.

When there's people in my way, I know just what to do.

I like to use my gentle hands, I like to use my words,
When others are the same to me, We all live happily.
