Mariana Iranzi’s newest album for children is a delightful blend of Spanish and English sounds. Living here in South Florida, we hear Spanish all the time, and I’m sure my kids will grow up to learn it in school. You can never start too early though, and I think that music is a wonderful way to learn a new language. After all, that’s how I learned Spanish as a teenager – through music – and why I was attracted right away to Mariana’s album.
The thirteen songs on this record are fun and happy as well as soft and sweet. They are a delight to any child’s ears, filled with the sounds of many different musical instruments and musical stylings, which grab children’s attention right away and keep them listening.
Our favorite songs are the sprightly title track, Hola Hello, which I love humming along to, Arco Iris, a song about rainbows and a beautiful introduction to learning the colors in Spanish, and Five Little Monkeys, a which features a fun Spanish translation of the classic English song.
This album will be a unique welcome addition to your child’s music collection and would make a wonderful gift for any mini-music-lovers this holiday season!
