In this award-winning program, children explore the world of animals and sounds, and get treated to a few surprises along the way. Children will giggle with glee at this motley group of animals, including a timid elephant who gets chased out of town by a mouse, a witty dog who can mimic the sounds of his farm friends, and a mischievous donkey who stirs up a hullabaloo in the barnyard! These playful puppets will have kids up on their feet dancing and singing along to beloved Spanish-language folksongs Los Pollitos and Vengan a Ver Mi Granja. This award-winning program is an ideal introduction to Spanish for the youngest language learners. The DVD teaches Spanish using the immersion teaching method recommended by language acquisition experts. (For more information about immersion, please watch the Language Immersion video on the company's website.) The DVD includes an easy-to-use translation guide for parents and teachers, as well as Spanish subtitles for adult learners. Designed for ages 1-5, Los Animales is perfect for the whole family!
Very enjoyable and engaging to watch. Makes learning a language fun and easy. The playful association of words, repetition in different scenarios, from animation to live action is natural and moves along with style and ease. Music, play and fun puppets add to the mix in an imaginative way that will capture children and adults alike. The flow of the language coupled with the visuals is very impressive and engaging -- without any English translation at all. --Kids First!
This very interactive DVD uses the immersion method of learning which makes it downright easy for kids to pick up the Spanish language. Lots of songs sung in Spanish, play and puppet fun make for a culturally broadening experience. --National Parenting Publications Awards
This unique DVD offers a fun way for children to actively participate in expanding their knowledge of Spanish... Using characters that are whimsical and appealing, children are exposed to and encouraged to enjoy the experience. Our testers felt with repetition that their children would absorb the lessons. --The National Parenting Center
