Founded in 2006, Whistlefritz was borne out of a mom’s passion to teach her own children Spanish. After reading research showing that early childhood was the best time to learn a language, Whistlefritz’s founding mom set out on a mission to find fun and educational teaching materials for her children. She searched for DVDs with engaging storylines, featuring live speakers rather than cartoons, and teaching through immersion. Not finding what she wanted, she decided to create it: engaging, playful, live-action Spanish immersion programs for her own kids and kids everywhere!

My Whistlefritz ¡Sabor! – Spanish Learning Songs CD review:
My daughter has always wanted to learn Spanish so when I was presented with the opportunity to review the Whistlefritz ¡Sabor! – Spanish Learning Songs CD I immidiatly jumped on it. I figured this would be a great way to help teach my daughter how to speak Spanish.
While listening to this CD, your kids and possibly yourself will have lots of fun with it. All the songs have a nice catchy beat to make want to dance. And the best part of it, is while you’re having fun, you’re learning Spanish! This CD is about 40 minutes long and includes 15 tracks. It also comes with the lyrics and translation guide. It’s a great CD for children of all ages who wish to learn Spanish.

There is one slight problem that I have. While this CD is fun and catchy, I would have liked it to be more on the same rhythm of the songs that are in English. Take for example the Old MacDonald Had a Farm song. The song doesn’t sounds like the English version until it hits the chorus then you can recognize what song it is. I mean it’s not a bad thing at all. I just wished that it had the same feel of the English version of the songs.
Other than that it is a great CD. And your kids would most definitely have a great time with it. Mine sure did!
