Uni Verse of Song: Spanish

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
Latin music's all the rage in pop environs these days, so it's no surprise that it's crossing over into the young kids' entertainment world as well.

Here, for example, is "Shortnin' Bread": "Pon el sartén, ponle la tapa/Mámi te cocina un pan de manteca/Put on the skillet, put on the lid/Mama's gonna make a little shortnin' bread." Other selections include "This Little Piggy," "Old King Cole," and "Sailing, Sailing." Spanish language offerings are the familiar "De Colores" and "La Bamba," along with the lesser-known "Arroz Con Leche." Del Rey and her musical cohorts, among them a lively children's chorus, keep things rollicking along at a bouncy, engaging clip.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
