Spanish Wrangler CD Review and Giveaway!

If you have read my blog much, you probably have noticed that I LOVE MUSIC , not to mention my passion for dancing around the house with my kids. So it makes me a very happy mommy when I am asked to review children's music. I tell my 4 year old, "You have Music!" when a new cd arrives, and he and his two year old counterpart start doing some moves closely resembling the Chicken Dance (before we put on the music, mind you!)

Thus, when the "Spanish Wrangler" (just the CD, not the singer himself, though mommy would have been very happy to see him at the door!) arrived at our house, the boys and I were delighted to review this latest cd!

There are songs such as "Broccoli", "Desayuno Boogie", "I Love My Dog", and "Cucaracha." I will let you in on a secret--I pretty much swooned as I listened to Will Thomas sing a beautiful version of "Eres Mi Vida" (Think--"You are my sunshine"). I lobbied for my boys to play this song a few times over, hehe.

Every song is not only adorable, they each relate to everyday scenarios in a very fun, and witty (a little girl who loves her broccoli!) way. But the best part of the cd is that all the songs have Spanish and English parts to them. So in "Desayuno Boogie" for example, my boys were learning the Spanish words for everyday food items that they eat. And they had a blast as they repeated the Spanish words they were learning. I loved listening to my kids practicing the days of the week, and learning them in Spanish as well as they listened to "They Call It Spanish Monday."

I am so impressed with this cd, that I will be giving a copy to my son's Kindergarten teacher when he starts in a few months. It is a perfect combination of fun and learning for the pre-K and Kindergarten set.

Will Thomas' style of country and blues, and his soothing voice that clearly pronounces the words, make singing along a fun thing to do, and has certainly made this cd an all-time favorite of this mommy and most definitely of her kids.
