Great Video, October 24, 2004
AliceT (Ellicott City, Maryland)
I borrowed this video from the library because I am learning Spanish and the
teacher recommended trying kids materials to help learn. This video is
wonderfull!! The songs are all beautiful. I find myself just humming and singing
them. My kids 2 and 6 years also love the video and ask to watch it again and
again. They use places/ situations that are interesting to kids, beautiful and
engaging video footage and engaging songs to teach Spanish. The first song is
about things you see in the zoo-- the lions that roar, the zebras with stripes,
etc all filmed in the San Diego zoo. The colors looked fine to me, so the lady
who had the problem with the yellow color might have had a defective video.
There is also a song about the beach, Happy Birthday to you, The Rain (a very
lovely song, my favorite), the Alphabet, The Grocery Store, The Days of the
Week(my son's favorite), The Seasons, The Night, I Wish I could Fly, Jump (a
song with numbers), etc. I also like the way that the songs are sung in English
and Spanish both. The singers will sing a phrase in English, followed by
Spanish, and many of the phrases are repeated several times to help with
learning and retention. All the songs are accompanied by engaging videos of kids
doing things they like (eg. looking at animals at the zoo, playing in the beach,
shopping with Mom and Dad at the grocery store, celebrating at a birthday party,
jumping rope, riding a hot air balloon, etc.) The singers include adults and
children. I liked this video that I borrowed so much that now I'm looking into
buying one. I think it's great for kids or adults wanting to learn Spanish. I
also think it would be great for a Spanish speaking person who wants to learn
English since it's sung in both languages.

I bought this video for my two-year-old daughter and was very disappointed.
The people on the tape are a strange orange color and the quality is very poor.
Also, my daughter became bored with the tape after about ten minutes. I would
not recommend this video.

GOOD MATERIAL TO TEACH SPANISH!, April 1, 1999
Kids really enjoy being able to see what they're learning and they make you
interact with them and the music. Great to use with teaching purposes for
toddlers (2-5), if you really want your kids to have an easy start to a foreign

Well done, entertaining and kid-friendly, February 7, 1999
This video provides kids 3-8 a great introduction to foreign language. Using
a kid-relevant approach, this video makes learning a foreign language fun for
the whole family!
