Watching and Learning Spanish {Giveaway}

Songs in Spanish and English, playful puppets, colorful toys, and dancing children are all in the educational and entertaining Cantarima videos.  These videos are not only fun, but also they teach a variety of different concepts as well.  The use of Spanish throughout the videos is a great way to further your child’s language development. There are two different videos produced by Cantarima-Cantos y Rimas (nursery songs and rhymes) and Números y Figuras (numbers and shapes).  The Nursery Songs andRead More ...

Video of the Week: Peep and the Big Wide World {Giveaway}

No other TV station in the US can compete with V-me for quality educational programming for kids en español.  We have always gladly written about their programming because we truly are fans and we´re always excited when they add a new show to their line-up.

Spanglish Wrangler {Giveaway}

This CD just puts me in a good mood.  It makes me want to sing-a-long, if only my daughter would let me, and to relax with a tall bubbly drink.  Oh, yes,  it’s also totally entertaining for your bilingual or Spanish-learning child as well.  Thomas, AKA the Spanglish Wrangler, knows his music.  The birth of his two children, coupled with his love of Spanish, led him on a journey to compose 12 enchanting songs where Spanish and English effortlessly flowRead More ...

Kid's music never tasted so good

We mostly review CDs of children’s music with Spanish or bilingual lyrics, but Putumayo Kids Presents deserves a rank of its own.  The children’s and educational division of the well-known Putumayo Music CDs dedicate themselves to the mission of introducing cultures to kids through the art of music. And they do it very well. As a parent raising a bilingual and bicultural child, I appreciate companies that create materials that reach out to to this generation of global citizens. IRead More ...

Dora celebrates la Noche Buena

Our amiga Dora has gotten herself and her friends into yet another adventure.  This time she volunteers to take Swiper off Santa’s naughty list by showing him the real spirit of la Navidad is giving, not taking away, or “swiping”, in his case.  To accomplish this, they take him to revisit the Swiper of Christmas past, present and future.  A classic holiday tale, told Dora-style. The first clip I saw of this Nickelodeon primetime special, “Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure”, wasRead More ...

Hot Peas ‘N Butter’s multicultural jamm

I´ve always considered myself a bit of a music snob because I am married to a Latin Musician/Song writer. With the birth of our Son, it was inevitable that music would be an important influence in his life. I, as a new mother, would prefer that he would have aspirations of becoming a lawyer, doctor or even an Indian Chief for that matter.  The reality is that there are instruments scattered from one end of our apartment to another andRead More ...

Doing the Spanish Bop

I was one of those mother´s-to-be that swore I wouldn´t let my kid control my music selection. That my iPod and my playlist would be that one-sacred-thing I was not willing to give up. Either she liked MY music or ni modo.  Ay, one more parenting joke on me. Luckily, my girl has great taste.  We do most of our music listening in the car and she has some very cool CDs (past Finds, of course!) to choose from.  But,Read More ...
