The School Library Journal review... Pre School "The premise of this book/CD set is that when words are sung they are better remembered than when they are spoken. Eleven nursery rhymes, such as "Jack and Jill" and "Jack Be Nimble," have been translated from English into Spanish. The CD contains the 11 songs in English and Spanish in both moderately paced and distinctly scherzo version. The intent is that parents (teachers and librarians) use the CD to learn the songs and then sing them with their children. The book uses an appealing rebus-like format to display the rhymes with English on the verso and Spanish on the recto. This package is best suited for the home market, though it also has applications in Headstart and other preschool programs serving bilingual populations."
