Spanish Songs for Children

Early childhood development specialists tout the importance of exposing young ones to music and teaching language as early as possible. Our testers were delighted to discover Spanish Songs for Children, a really well-conceived and well-produced album. The cover art design is sweet, an artistic image of a donkey in the countryside, rather than something florescent/loud. The songs are catchy, upbeat and unique. The album borrows from sounds across Latin America, and they are not merely retreads of songs we have all heard. A couple of them are mashups of known tunes. A couple of the tunes are fresh versions of classics. They are all arranged well, with a full band of instruments, a strong singer, and numerous children who are wonderful singers in their own right. English is seamlessly interwoven into the songs, so the translations are part of the lyrics. Parents liked that the songs are sung in a normal cadence, not slowed down for Spanish learners. Not only is this fun to listen to with children, but it is a great supplemental educational tool, perfect for kids learning Spanish. While this is geared towards younger children, it is not a collection of baby songs. No one will feel ‘sung down to.’ The verdict is in: Parents would absolutely recommend it.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
