This cd contains 23 songs of from countries across Latin America. Some, like Mama yo quiero, are songs that one would expect to hear at a celebration, while others, like Los meses del ano, are purely educational. There are other songs that tell of cultural practices or traditions, like Arroz con leche. Orozco has a clear voice, and enunciates well, making these songs great for language learning. Many of the celebration songs are lively and would encourage kids to move around to the music. The only thing that could make this cd better would be a lyrics to the songs. ( )

From the award-winning author-illustrator team that brought us De Colores and Diez Deditos, here is a collection of songs of celebration from the Spanish- speaking world. Presented in both Spanish and English and including basic musical accompaniment, the songs honor Latin American holidays such as Cinco de Mayo and Carnival as well as more universal holidays such as Christmas, Halloween, Mother’s Day, and more. Bright, energetic illustrations bring the holidays to life in this joyous collection that can be enjoyed by all ages, all year round.
