Giveaway - Ola, Amiga! Canta en Espanol! Habla en Espanol!

Thursday, July 24, 2008


Ok two things to start off. One, I do not speak Spanish. Two, I can't find the damn Nina symbol on my keyboard, and its making me bonkers. How am I going to type Spanish words with no nina? Does anyone have a Compaq Presario who can tell me how to use special symbols? Jeesh.

We tried out " Our Silly Farm Adventure" from Professor Pocket. I just want to say I LOVE this CD. So does Soph. At first I was a little aprehensive, thinking once you have heard Muzzy, or one of those "learn to Speak Spanish" CDs you have heard them all. No- this is done differently. The songs are in Spanish and English, interchanging with each other like a beautiful dance, with some of the funkiest beats I have heard in children's music. You can't HELP but sing along. The kids can't help but learn through memorization! the CD follows Professor Pocket, Desi the Dinosaur and Chico the Chicken on a bilingual musical adventure to visit the very unique and magical farm where Chico was born. Listeners will be delighted to learn that pigs drive tractors, cows make chocolate milk and horses fly at this farm, where nothing is what it seems! A silly bilingual storyline, 5 original songs and a remake of the popular Latin American folk song, “Los Pollitos”, are sure to get the whole family singing and speaking along in Spanish.
Personally I am a firm believer in teaching children to be Bilingual in this country. It is important to me that Sophia and Sagan learn Spanish ( actually, with Sagan, we will just be thrilled if he masters English! lol) both at home and at school. Up to this point I felt limited as far as resources go for achieving this goal. With products from Professor Pocket, I think kids of ALL AGES can get a jump start on becoming bilingual and being entertained at the same time.
Would you like a copy of Professor Pocket's Hawaiian Hula Adventure? It's our first official giveway here at Sagan's Universe! Just visit Professor Pocket's awesome and easy to navigate site, and tell me in a comment what your favorite product would be. Winner will be picked August 5th!
A Dr. Toy Best Products award winner.

Oh how neat! I am currently trying to build my daughters' cd collection. They are music freaks! Singing and dancing all day long. It facinates me to watch them. It will be the first time my oldest ever heard a particular song and she has it memorized by the time it's over. Amazing!

I went to the site and i'd love to have their first cd too. Sounds fun!

Thanks for the opportunity!

My son is always talking about going to Hawaii for vacation and since he starts learning Spanish in kindergarten this fall, I know he would love learning songs about Hawaii in Spanish too!

The products look really cool-what a great, fun way for little kids (and their parents) to learn Spanish! I love the dinosaur shirt too! I may have to get that for my little dinosaur lover!
