Latin GRAMMY Award nominated artist 123 Andrés releases his second album of sing-along learning songs for kids in English and Spanish: Arriba Abajo.
The bilingual learning nexus Spanish Playground says Arriba Abajo features “rich layers of music and language.” The songs reflect Dr. Andrés Salguero’s expertise as an educator who also has a PhD in music.
As Spanish Playground notes, “It is a challenge to create children’s learning songs that combine quality music with engaging content and yet are not overly-didactic. Andrés has found a perfect balance on Arriba Abajo. Patterns to build skills such as rhyming, phonemic awareness and number sense are embedded in the lyrics.”
A beta testing team of families and teachers are contributing to a new 123 Andrés r Learning Guide, which will be released this summer. Visit www.123andres.com for updates. The latest are a live action performance with kids of “Cosquillas” (Tickles), and an animated music video for “Dame Una A” (Give Me an A).
