I Like Animals! Me gustan los animales! Review

I'm pleased to review a a DVD called I Like Animals! Me gustan los animals! from Boca Beth.

My kids really got into watching it. I was expecting something dry and it's not! It's full of songs, dancing and fun. My 6 year old read the words that went along with the songs and my 3 year old danced. Beth Butler also known as Boca Beth makes learning Spanish fun!

I love how the songs are sung in both Spanish and English.

She sent along a coloring book that my 6 year old already colored in.

I think this set is most certainly striking their interest in Spanish!

What Makes Boca Beth Different:
  • Their products are in both English and Spanish making them truly bilingual. 
  • It is taught using Total Physical Response. This is done by using song, visuals, words to read along with the music, instruments, a coloring book and the puppet named Boca Beth.
  • The program has been created by a teacher and translated by native Spanish-speaking early childhood experts. Its taught in 50 states, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and 15 countries around the world!  
  • The packaging is green! The paper is 100% reycled and the ink is vegetable based.
  • No second language experience is required to use Boca Beth products. The latest research says you do not need to be a native speaker in order to introduce a second language to little children.

It is said on their website, "Experts agree that the earlier you start  introducing the better it is for your young child. Birth to five are the best years to get started!"
 You can find Boca Beth on her website, YouTube, Facebook and on Twitter. I really like Boca Beth's YouTube channel! They have videos that are in Spanish and English. The videos can be watched for free!

Want to buy the  I Like Animals! Me gustan los animals! ? is just $16.99. I think the prices are really pretty good on Boca Beth! The DVD has 100 words and 15 phrases from around the house in both English and Spanish.
