SONGS BY BAND NUMBER                                                                                  ALPHABETICAL LIST




Booklist 09/15/96: "Catchy songs…high in child appeal"


School Library Journal: 07/96: "The music is lively and children will want to sing along."


A 1996 Parent's Choice approval: "Spanish-speaking preschoolers will jump right into this."


Parent's Council, Fall, 1996: "Your children will love these fun and lively songs."


Patricia Penta-Santana (personal communication 2004): 
"Please let me introduce myself. I am a Mexican who teaches Spanish and English to kindergarten children in Japan. 
I am very grateful to you for the cassette "Todos, Listos CANTEN!". It has been a very useful material for my classes.
I have been using the song "Cabeza y Hombres" and children just love it! While listening to this song,
the children and I are transported to the joyful environment you created with the children there during the recording. 
Maybe the laughs of the children in the tape make the children laugh every time they listen to it. 
No matter how many times they listen to it, they always laugh at the end."
