Review:

Founded in 2006, the children's Spanish language company Whistlefritz was started by a mom who wanted to teach her own children Spanish. Frustrated by the lack of high-quality Spanish immersion programs, she decided to create her own Spanish DVDs and CDs for children. Cha, Cha, Cha is Whistlefritz's second CD for kids (there are also three DVDs), and with it, families can learn to cantar (sing), bailar (dance), and aprender (learn) Spanish. The CD is a lively collection of Spanish songs performed by the award-winning singer and songwriter Jorge Anaya. Children explore educational concepts through a plethora of Latin rhythms, as in the Samba of "Las Vocales" (The Vowels), the cha cha of "Los NĂºmeros" (The Numbers), and the polka of "Que Llueva" (Let it Rain). Cha, Cha, Cha is a load of fun, and along the way it makes learning Spanish exhilarating and alive. The CD features a collection of upbeat originals, as well as popular and traditional favorites such as "La Cucaracha," "El Barco Chiquito," "Los Elefantes," and "Bingo." Children can dance and sing as they learn vocabulary words, the alphabet, and numbers in Spanish. A handy translation guide is included, which provides an easy reference for parents and teachers who may be first-time Spanish learners, themselves.
