REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Booklist 08/01/97: "The songs reinforce language concepts naturally through music…buoyant sing-along rhythms…lively percussion…Good for individual or group use in schools or public libraries."
Parent Council Fall, 1997: "Helpful for children wanting to practice either Spanish or English."
The traditional English folksong, "This Old Man", is shared in a format of a slow song, a robust chant, and a fast song in English on one side and Spanish adaptation on the other.
