Review:
An excellent musician and outstanding performer who has worked with school age children in the U.S. since coming here from Chile over 25 years ago, Paz is a national treasure! Unfortunately, this recording tries to do too much: it combines young children's lullabies, rhymes and songs with songs for older children on the playground.

By including archival recordings of children at play, the producers chose to expand the collection to include the Caribbean under the Latin American umbrella. The songs are in English, and do not sound like Paz's songs. Spanish-speaking Caribbean children's songs are much different.

Suni Paz 's work is of outstanding quality; her efforts to bring Spanish-speaking children closer to their roots and to their own humanity through song and music is a commendable, laudable effort.
