Discover the power of music and poetry to build literacy!  Infuse culture into your curriculum with this indispensible collection of poetry and songs in Spanish.  This program is an excellent vehicle for developing phonemic awareness  and supporting language acquisition, basic foundations for reading success.  The musical compilations include traditional folklore, selected works by a wide range of Latin American authors, and original material written by Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy. All of the songs are arranged and sung by Suni Paz, and many are her original compositions. The books contain magnificent color illustrations by Ulises Wensell.  The importance of songs in the classroom cannot be overly emphasized. Songs are a vehicle for both teachers and students to develop fluency in the language, improve pronunciation and intonation, build vocabulary, and develop their understanding of Hispanic culture. Learning the traditional folklore cherished by families and communities will strengthen Latino children’s sense of identity; for Englishspeakers learning Spanish, songs and folklore will deepen their appreciation of the Spanish language.  Each of the accompanying books includes the corresponding lyrics for all of the songs. All of these songs and poems can be used from kindergarten to grade six for oral language development and cultural enrichment. The first five compilations are particularly suited for helping develop specific literacy skills, as indicated. The last five support sustained language development, a deepened appreciation for literature, and an ongoing love for independent reading.  Musica amiga Phonetic Guide (1) (2)

Latin Baby Book Club : Música amiga: ¡Que rica la ronda! by F. Isabel Campoy : This month we have a special treat for you. The estimada Sra. F. Isabel Campoy has graciously written a series of posts describing what she considers their best contribution to Latino children  Música amiga. Written together with Alma Flor Ada, this incredible collection is made even more powerful by their collaboration with the talented Suni Paz, who arranged and sings all of the songs on the Music CD many of which are her original compositions. In addition, the series contains magnificent color illustrations by Ulises Wensell.  Música amiga uses the power of music and poetry to build literacy. This remarkable series is available as a set or individually. Parents, teachers, librarians, and homeschoolers will find this set to be an extremely valuable tool for developing their children's/students' phonemic awareness and supporting language acquisition, basic foundations for reading success.  We hope you will join the LBBC in expressing our sincerest thanks to Sra. Campoy for sharing Múscia amiga with all of us this month...Música amiga constitutes an anthology of Hispanic folklore, plus our original poems. In its 120 compositions there is the foundation of language for children to learn by singing, and a treasure for mothers, to close the circle of their own childhood. In our 40 plus poems we share our pride to be Latinos, our joy to be part of an extended family, and even an invitation to take care of life!  There are ten books to this series, each with an accompanying Music CD.  Each book includes 12 carefully selected poems. All 120 poems are presented as songs in the Music CD collection. Some of the poems are from folklore, a number of them have been originally written by Alma Flor Ada and myself. A few are from other renown poets.  The books have magnificent illustrations from internationally acclaimed illustrator Ulises Wensell.  All of these poems and songs can be enjoyed by children in PreK to 6th grade, as they touch upon topics that affect us, inspire, and entertain us all. Parents will find it easy to sing along with their children thanks to Suni Paz’s musical creations, or learn the lyrics for inspiration and pride in their own identity.  The first five volumes are particularly suited for helping develop specific literacy skills and for the reinforcement of specific syllabic combinations as well as overall language development. The last five volumes support sustained language development, a deepened appreciation for literature and an ongoing love for independent reading.
