Children's Corner by Claude Debussy was published in 1908. It is dedicated to Debussy's daughter, Claude-Emma, who was three years old at the time. The pieces are not intended to be played by children; rather they are meant to be evocative of childhood and some of the toys in Claude-Emma's toy collection. She was described as a lively and friendly child who was adored by her father.

1. Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum

2. Jimbo's Lullaby

3. Serenade for the Doll

4. The Snow is Dancing

5. The Little Shepherd
