“This Carnaval French Learning Songs CD is a great educational learning asset that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Testers were thrilled and enthusiastic about discovering this musical CD that is entertaining but also teaches children an appreciation of French. Whistlefritz has proven time and time again that when it comes to entertaining and teaching children, they have got you “covered.” The music itself is upbeat with a whimsical, circusy vibe, mixed with a little bit of jazz. Even if your child can’t appreciate the words right away, they can surely enjoy the beats and the rhythms. There are a lot of different instruments, and that provides parents with yet another learning opportunity as they identify each. Parents told us that it quickly became one of their children’s favorite CDs to get up and dance to. There are so many songs crammed on to this one CD that parents felt it was an excellent value.”
