Great Songs! Oct 28, 2007
I teach preschool and the kids love these songs! I really like that each song has hand gestures to do along which keeps the kids engaged on the song. I also ordered the CD soundtrack which makes it easier for me to memorize songs and the kids love to sing along with it.
high quality music comes from our roots Oct 21, 2007
I have used this CD for about 7 years as part of my prekinder bilingual curriculum, and it has been very successful with my students. Also, I know it is quality children's folk music because I have studied in detail children's folk music from Mexico, and most of these selections are easily validated as original folk music. You can be sure they are not contrived at all by adults for children. I recommend the book that goest with it, too.
Beautiful Illustrations Jan 15, 2007
This is a wonderful book with beautiful illustrations -- a must have companion for the CD.
Great, if you have a piano and can read music... Mar 9, 2006
A great book with lyrics in Spanish and English and wonderful illustrations. However, a CD to go along with the book would be much better than the sheet music included....
Diez Deditos Dec 2, 2003
The author, Jose Luis Orozco, is a bilingual educator/singer who keeps English-speaking and Spanish-speaking children interested throughout his books and accompanying music. As a substitute teacher, I have used his books and tapes extensively in elementary school classes over the years. I have had the privilege of attending his concerts at elementary schools several times and have thoroughly enjoyed his work.
I recommend the two books authored by Jose Luis Orozco, that I have purchased and read many times with students.
