Our Experience:


We were given two of Boca Beth's Music CD's for review: My First Songs in Spanish and Sing Praise for Children.



The very first day we tried the My First Songs in Spanish, my children were singing and dancing around the living room, trying to imitate the words on the CD. I was very impressed with the clarity of the words on this CD as well as well as with the child friendly music. Even as I sit here now, I hear my little guy singing one of the songs he learned on this CD. It truly warms a mom's heart!! Listen to sample songs from this CD here.



The second CD we tried out was the Sing Praise for Children CD- which is a sweet selection of praise songs sung in both English and Spanish. Again, the lively and inspiring tunes won over my children the first time they listened to it and it is now the first thing they ask for when we get into our van. The only "problem" with teaching my children a new language is their insistence that they are now proficient Spanish- speaking people and they often make up words and say them proudly with a strong Spanish accent. It keeps us laughing for sure!! Listen to sample songs from this CD here.


We give Boca Beth a very happy

TWO THUMBS UP!!

  5. I'd like the My First Songs In Spanish
    My First Songs In Spanish. I have 2 Hispanic students this year. ( I usually have 4-5.) This CD would be great for my "other" students to hear songs in Spanish! Maybe then they'd begin to understand why it's hard for the Hispanic students to catch on quickly. This would be great for talking about cultural differences too!

  44. The sing praise for children is what I would like because my kids dont typically prefer the traditional catholic music so this might get us to praise in a new beat. Thanks, Godesseablu@msn.com
