A los Niños de Chile is the 26th official studio album by Chilean singer-songwriter Ángel Parra as a soloist. It was originally released in Chile in 1993, and is made up of children's songs composed by Ángel, several of which are performed together with his daughter Javiera Parra , who had already accompanied the musician on his previous album Todo el amor .

In 1994 the album was re-released in France , the country where Ángel Parra lived for many years in exile as a result of the military dictatorship in Chile. This second version has another cover, its name is changed to Songs for Children , with the French subtitle "Chansons en espagnol pour les enfants" , and includes the names of the songs also in French.

Ángel Parra had already released another children's music album in 1986: Chansons et comptines d'Amérique du Sud ( Songs and riddles of South America ), composed on that occasion entirely of songs and riddles from the popular tradition.

The last song, «Nana del espejito» , is a tribute to the Spanish writer Federico García Lorca . [ 1 ]
