A happy collection of songs, finger games, dances and rhymes from Spanish speaking countries
Illustrated by Lura Schwarz-Smith
Many of us have been waiting (rather impatiently) for this latest songbook/cd set from Mary Schunemann. We’ve come to love what Mary can teach us about singing with children, and especially to love her magically clear, warm voice as she teaches us the songs we want to share with our little ones.
Now she is giving us a delightful collection of songs in Spanish — some of my very favorite children’s songs in the world. When my own children were very young, we sang in as many languages as we could, but of all the songs we shared, it was the Spanish ones they asked for most. I think it was the joyous rhythms and happy rhymes — and the fact that something in the songs set your feet to tapping and dancing. We all danced as we sang whenever we could.
You’ll love these as much as your children will. Thank you, Mary!
