Música amiga {GIVEAWAY}


I have long admired the work of authors Alma Flor Ada, F. Isabel Campoy, and Suni Paz. These ladies are certainly an inspiration to women around the world for their absolute devotion to children and education. When I began exploring Latino children's literature for my children and the Latin Baby Book Club, their work was some of the first I came across. They were then, and continue to be, my favorites. Both Alma Flor and Isabel have contributed to the Book Club's website with articles and descriptions of their books.

So as I was putting together this Music in Education series, their Música amiga collection immediately came to mind. So I contacted them asking if they would consider donating a set or one of their other works for a giveaway.

Their generosity is unbelievable and I am happy to say that MommyMaestra will be partnering with them over the few months to bring you some of their best educational materials for children. You can learn about these giveaways by following MommyMaestra's Facebook page.

To begin, the authors have offered two sets of Música amiga to MommyMaestra readers. One for a teacher and another for a parent.

Sra. Campoy once told me that she felt this series was their best contribution to Latino children. 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 CD many of which are her original compositions.

This anthology of folklore and original poems uses the power of music and poetry to build literacy. It is available as a set or as individual books. Parents, teachers, librarians, and homeschoolers will find Música amiga to be a valuable tool for developing their students' phonemic awareness and supporting language acquisition; both basic foundations for reading success.

You can find a complete description of each book on the Latin Baby Book Club website as it was shared by Sra. Campoy. It is available for purchase through Del Sol Books.

  15. This is something i would love not only for my two kids but also for the children that i care for in my Home Daycare. A lot of the children that i care for parents try to instill spanish in them but with us coming from a military back ground and the parents working 12 hour shift, i think this would be great fro me to have so that i can play these cds during the day and read the books to them, that way they are learning spanish. I think this would be very great.
