Children’s Song: Good Little Rabbit 小兔子乖乖

Good Little Rabbit is a Chinese Children’s Song that teach young children about not opening the door for strangers.

It’s a bit unimaginable these days but when I grew up, it wasn’t uncommon for young children, elementary school aged, to stay home on their own. It’s usually for a short period of time after school, but I have also spent entire summers at home alone while my parents worked. Children’s safety was a major issue. Not only do parents have to worry about all the hazards at home, there is also the concern of Child traffickers and burglars. It is very common for people to knock on doors when they know the child is home alone and try to trick them to open their doors, hence why this song was so important back then.

I don’t think many family leave their children at home anymore these days, but this is still a cute song and the story is good to warn young child about strangers in general.

小兔子乖乖是我小时候常听的一首儿歌,儿歌教会年幼的我不要随意给陌生人开门。记得我上小学的时候,因为父母工作忙碌,经常自己一个人在家,有时是下课之后,但寒暑假则是一整天都一个人。那个时候应该是九零年后,人贩子和小偷是个隐患,所以我很少被允许独自出门,但是骗子上门敲门让小孩子开这种事情也是时有发生。为了安全,这首歌就十分有用了。

近几年孩童独自在家的状况应该有所减少,可是这首歌我仍然觉得很不错,她旋律优美,故事也十分有趣。

提供下载的pdf里有个词卡,并且还包括了全部的故事。
