Washington, DC (September 1, 2019) – No matter the season, it’s always time to celebrate! Learning Spanish has never been more fun — thanks to Whistlefritz’s Spanish for Kids series of award-winning, language-learning programs and its latest music album release, Carnaval – Spanish Learning Songs.
CARNAVAL’s festive musical celebration begins with a tour of the Spanish-speaking world in ¿De dónde eres? (Where are you from?) The party continues with upbeat celebration-themed songs – Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Carnaval – that teach children Spanish words for celebrations, family, food, camping, seasons, and much more! From calypso, soca, and soukous to New Orleans second line jazz, Latin, and country, the album’s diverse musical styles are a carnaval for the ears that features exciting new twists on beloved Spanish folksongs such as A mi burro (My donkey), Debajo un botón (Under a button), Señora Santana, and L’araña pequeñita (The itsy, bitsy spider).
Kids and adults alike will enjoy listening to the masterful musicianship and catchy melodies performed by Cuban-American vocalist Ileana Pérez and musician-composer Didier Prossaird. Lyrics, translations, and a vocabulary guide are available as an easy reference guide for adults learning Spanish as well. Join the Carnaval and you’ll be singing along in Spanish in no time!
Since its founding, Whistlefritz has worked with families and teachers across the globe to create entertaining and educational programs that inspire children’s love of languages! Whistlefritz was borne out of a mom’s passion to raise her children bilingually. Motivated by research showing that early childhood is the best time to learn a language, Whistlefritz’s founder set out on a mission to assemble high-quality learning resources for her kids. Not finding what she wanted, she decided to create them: engaging programs with whimsical storylines, colorful animation and graphics, delightful characters, live action footage, and irresistible music for her own kids and kids everywhere!
A valuable teaching tool and welcome addition to any family’s home collection, Whistlefritz’s Spanish for Kids and French for Kids music CDs, videos, and lesson plans have received over 100 national honors and accolades from the most-respected organizations in children’s media, including the Parents’ Choice Foundation, The National Parenting Center, NAPPA, KIDS FIRST!, The Dove Foundation, Mr. Dad, and many more.
CARNAVAL – Spanish Learning Songs is recommended for kids of all ages and is available for $14.99. Other Whistlefritz titles available in the Spanish for Kids series include The Spanish Ultimate Collection, Spanish Lesson Plans for Kids, ¡A Bailar!, Cha, Cha, Cha – Spanish Learning Songs, and ¡Sabor!
