I like Buenos D�as: Spanish Learning Songs CD because it is very pleasant and electrifying to listen to. It has kid-friendly songs that make it easy to learn Spanish at the same time you are dancing to the songs.

This CD has 15 songs and is about 40 minutes of fun. The singers are award-winning soprano Ileana P�rez and Jorge Anaya, who is a songwriter too. Didier Prossaird is in charge of the fantastic music. The CD includes each song's lyrics and its translation in English as well as a tool to help the listeners learn Spanish. This CD helps the children to learn how to count, how to say words in Spanish, how to be nice to others and teaches about things like costumes or typical traditions related to Spanish language countries.

My favorite songs are number two, "Como se Llama la Llama?" (What's the Lama's Name?), because it is so catchy and fun to listen to. I also like number four, "Sonidos del Flamenco" (Sounds of Flamenco) because it is so peaceful and soothing. I even picked up some words that I didn't know. This CD can be a very productive tool to teach Spanish in preschool or elementary classrooms.

This CD's songs transports you to different countries, teaches you about different cultures and offers different types of musical rhythms to dance to. If you have Hispanic roots, it makes you feel proud of where your parents or ancestors come from and helps you to appreciate your background.

I give Buenos Dias Spanish Learning Songs 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4 to 12. This CD is out now and it can be a very useful Christmas gift. So go get it pronto!

Buenos Dias! Spanish Learning Songs is the perfect album to teach young kids the Spanish language! Each song is fun and has a great beat to keep kids entertained while learning. The songs are also extremely catchy.

This CD is aimed for preschool and early elementary children to learn how to speak Spanish. Whistlefritz, the CD's producer is known for their work in teaching languages through music. It's comforting to know you will be taught how to speak the language the correct and proper way. The artists and singers, Jorge Anaya, Ileana Perez and Didier Prossaird sing the various songs on the CD. Each song is short, around one to two minutes long. The lyrics are fairly easy to learn and the basic Spanish words can be picked up quickly. There are translations in English as well.

My favorite song is "Como Se Llama La Llama?" (What's the Llama's Name?). The beat is of merengue music, making you want to dance along. Some of the other songs focus on holidays, like Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. It's the perfect album to listen to year round. There are also great lullabies like "Duermete Mi Nino" and "Duermete Mi Ni�a" for bedtime listening.

This CD's purpose is to teach young children how to speak Spanish. Some of the songs tell stories and others are lullabies. The first track is named "Buenos Dias, Amiguitos" (Good Morning, Little Friends), which serves as the welcome introduction to the soundtrack.

I give Buenos Dias! Spanish Learning Songs 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 3 to 9. It is available to order at www.Whistlefritz.com now. Look for it.

!Buenos D�as! Spanish Learning Songs is an eclectic and happy collection of children's music that lifts the spirits from the moment you play the first song. It is great, not only for multicultural families, but also for those that love to explore different cultures, discover traditions from other countries and learn a second language.

I love how diverse this compilation of children songs is. You can enjoy different rhythms from different countries including Mexico, Peru and Colombia from South America and also flamenco from Spain. You can sing and dance along with the songs to the beats and sounds of salsa, merengue and Caribbean tunes from traditional children's songs from Spanish speaking countries.

Families can enjoy !Buenos D�as! Spanish Learning Songs musically and as a learning experience as well. The CD comes with a booklet with lyrics in Spanish and their English translations, so parents and kids can learn while they sing. The lyrics contain a great amount of basic vocabulary about animals, nature, food, music and human relationships.

The selections of songs, recording, arrangements and production is of the highest quality. The voice of Cuban-American Soprano singer Ileana Perez is beautiful and her Spanish enunciation is very clear. The musical production is impeccable and it is also an enriching experience while learning music.

The 15 tracks in !Buenos D�as! Spanish Learning Songs are all enjoyable. I recommend !Buenos D�as! Spanish Learning Songs for kids ages 2 to 10, as well as the whole family. I give it 5 out of 5 stars for its exceptional music quality and the fascinating learning experience. It's available now, so look for it.

The CD Buenos Dias! Spanish Learning Songs from Whistlefritz gives a terrific sample of traditional musical styles representing Spanish culture. The music ranges from lively salsa rhythms to slower lullabies. Most songs are original, but the songs "Manzanita de Peru," "Arbolito de Peru" and "Duermete Mi Nino/Mi Nina" include traditional lyrics with new music and arrangements. The songs have catchy Spanish lyrics, repetitive sentence frames and English translations included in the liner notes. Word-by-word translation guides are contained on the Whistlefritz website. A couple of the songs describe the weather ("Buenos Dias, Amiguitos") and making introductions ("Como Se Llama La Llama?"). "El Tamal No Esta Mal" portrays a picky eater whom others entice with different foods. "Hagamos Musica" and "Sonidos del Flamenco" describe traditional Spanish instruments such as the guitar and castanets and their sounds. Listeners can sing about the fun eggshell tradition in "Cascarones." "Se Habla Espanol" lists countries where Spanish is spoken. "Mi Osito" would appeal to younger children as the speaker searches for a lost teddy bear. There are songs for Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. The artists Jorge Anaya, Ileana Perez and Didier Prossaird perform the songs expertly with pleasant voices matching the mood and humor of the songs. All in all the 15 tracks offer the listener exposure to different Spanish musical styles, traditions and language. I give this CD 4 out of 5 stars and recommended it for ages 5 to 9.
