PreS-Gr 2-This CD and book set was designed by bilingual educators specifically for classroom use. The large format (10"'15"), spiral-bound book carries the CD in a plastic pocket on the inside back cover. The 10 songs presented are sung by an adult female vocalist and supported by a 14-piece Latin band. Instrumental versions of the songs are also presented so that children can try to sing along or for use in performances. Each song is dedicated to a particular color and set to highly recognizable children's tunes such as "I'm a Little Tea Pot," "On Top of Old Smokey," and "B-I-N-G-O." The new and original lyrics, sung in Spanish, are repetitive as they spell out the name of the color and list everyday objects representative of the color. Within the book, each color receives its own two-page spread, offering the lyrics in both English and Spanish and illustrated with basic drawings of the objects mentioned. This highly entertaining set is a wonderful teaching tool for bilingual or ESL classrooms. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
