The more the bilingual (English/Spanish) community continues to grow and have a loud presence, the more quality educational products for our children will be made available. We hope to always be in the forefront of letting you know about these products and services for our niños.
Such is the case with Witty Planet, a small company that is bringing the popular Línea Descubriendo line of educational DVDs, CDs and flashcards featuring Bubba y Sus Amigos to the United States. Bubba has been watched and loved by preschool-age kids in Argentina for the last seven years. Now, our kids can join in the fun and be immersed in Spanish while playing and learning colors, music, animals, geography, foods and many more concepts.
We received a copy of their DVD “Descubriendo los Colores junto a Miró” which is suitable for children 8 months to four years. The video is created in the fashion of other popular educational children´s videos, but with much more engagement, original catchy songs and plenty of images of nature and of children dancing, singing and interacting with the puppets who talk in Spanish. In this DVD, Bubba and his friends take you on a journey of art discovery through the colorful artwork of Joan Miró. Using imagery from his paintings and easy to sing-a-long tunes, your child will easily be mesmerized by the images and be oblivious to the fact she´s learning her colors en español.
What Línea Descubriendo gets right is that the best way to engage children into learning language or any concepts through the use of media is to get them involved with what they are watching and listening. The images, the puppets, the short sequences and the songs make it all come to life and, in our case, got my girl dancing and repeating what she was hearing. In fact, the first time we played it we couldn´t watch the whole thing because she was fascinated to see that azul and rojo make morado and amarillo and azul make verde. So, we had to pause the video and head to the playroom to make the color experiment happen ourselves! How´s that for interactive learning?
There´s also a Spanish language interactive site for parents and kids that has great games and learning materials: El Mundo de Bubba.
