Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8):
Kids say (3):

These colorful 3D animated music videos, based on the songs and characters from the Canticos brand, offer a fun way to teach kids words and phrases in two languages. Each nursery rhyme is performed at a pace that allows preschoolers to follow along in both languages.

Canticos is a cultural celebration of the songs and stories many Latino children have grown up with over the years. However, it also serves as an early introduction to bilingual education, and offers young children the opportunity to learn and/or retain two languages, regardless of their cultural background.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
