Excellent for World-Themes in the Classroom! Dec 4, 2006
I have taught a couple of summer schools with PreK and Kindergarten students and we had soooo much fun with many of these songs. The absolute favorite is the first song "Hello to all the children of the world", which teaches children to say hello in different languages. We did half sign language, half movement which made it not only fun for the kids, but also for the parents when we sang this song to them. The other favorite songs: "Brown Girl in the Ring" and "Going Over the Sea". If you are a teacher or even a parent, your kids will LOVE this CD and will learn a little culture in the process.
Travelling the World in Our Minivan Aug 23, 2006
I purchased this cd last week to use as a springboard for studies of other cultures with my kids (ages 8, 5, and 3). It is GREAT!
We listen to it in the van and it feels like we are visiting other countries when we're just on our way to the grocery store! The kids love it...even the songs that they don't understand. The songs are introduced by a national in the nation's language. In many cases, these are children. Then the kids translate their introduction into english. The song is then sung in the native language and sung again in english. My eight year old loves reading the native language while it's being sung...and often tries to sing it with them.
I am amazed at the translation because I know it took work to find out what these songs mean and how to make it fit musically into english. Very good quality work.
