Mister G ABC Fiesta- Fun Bilingual Music!

 

 

 

A celebration of music and reading is presented in Mister G’s latest release ” ABC  Fiesta”,  which is filled with a blend of Latin rhythms, funky acoustic guitar, that makes you want to dance and sing!   Music and songs are some of the best ways to expose and reinforce the Spanish language to kids, and this latest CD by Mister G is fun, upbeat, and educational.   I love that there are voices of bilingual children featured, as well as several playful interludes illustrating how certain Spanish words are used in different ways throughout Latin America.   Not only are the songs great for enhancing listening and fluency, but also to spark conversation about culture and language!  One of my favorite songs is ABC Fiesta, which is a celebration of  letters, words, and reading in both Spanish and English.  My kids love to dance and sing along to Cocodrilo, as well as the interactive Frota Tu Panza, which is a great lesson for body parts!

Mister G, is a Parents’ Choice Gold Award winning artist, whose music has been featured in People Magazine, on national television,  and is currently on the Latin Grammy ballot as a contender for Best Chidren’s Album of 2012 for his previous album Chocolala.    He has extensive  experience from being awarded a songwriting scholarship to the Berklee College of Music, earning a Master’s degree in elementary education, and a critically acclaimed career performing for adults, and now is inspired to create children’s music.  We are so happy he did!   As a bilingual educator and parent, I am always looking for fresh, upbeat music that kids and parents will love, to help foster the Spanish language development.  ABC Fiesta is a perfect combination both for enjoyment and to be used as a teaching tool!

    Fist of all, thanks for your wonderful blog! Second, I would LOVE to win a copy of the CD to share with my preschool classes who I am teaching Spanish to and let their parents know about this great resource!

  2. Lisa says:

    We love new CDs of Spanish for the car, my girls have memorized lots of songs and expanded vocabulary through music!

  3. Jen Rogers says:

    My daughter loves listening and singing along with songs in Spanish… She is picking up the language faster than me, and she’s only 2! In the car I often have to play the same song 3 or 4 times in a row… And as long as she is singing along, I don’t mind. I would love to have this CD to add to our music selection. Thank you for all you do for us, and our community.

  4. Jennifer L. says:

    We would love a Spanish CD. I have four children who all take spanish and this would certainly reinforce their learning.
