“…These songs do a superb job of introducing fundamental topics while incorporating movement … The musicianship and the production values are excellent. It is refreshing to have a Spanish language CD for children that is fun for adults too! A great tool for preschool Spanish/bilingual story times and a welcome addition to any library’s foreign language collection for young children.
