Spanish for Kids: Las Estaciones DVD Review + {Giveaway – Ends 6/7} (CLOSED)

Spanish for kids Las Estaciones
If you’re looking for a fun, easy way to teach your children a little Spanish, this is just the thing for you. The new Spanish for Kids: Las Estaciones (The Seasons) DVD is made with young children in mind. Maybe you want your child to learn another language, or maybe you just want a well-rounded education for them. No matter your intentions, your children will enjoy the DVD and learn some important Spanish language skills. Even if they are just watching this DVD for fun (and it is fun!) they will learn more than they realize.

Produced by Whistlefritz, Spanish for Kids is an award-winning Spanish immersion DVD series featuring the adorable Fritzi, a lovable, animated mouse who interacts with live-action adults and children to help teach Spanish.  In Las Estaciones (The Seasons), Fritzi wants to celebrate his birthday, which comes in the Fall.  With the help of his friend Maria, young viewers learn about the many joys associated with all four seasons, from sledding and snowball fights in winter (el invierno), to trick-or-treating in autumn (el otoño).  It’s a year-round celebration for young viewers to enjoy with Fritzi and all his Whistlefritz friends!

Winner of more than 20 awards, Whistlefritz was founded in 2006 by a mom who wanted to teach her own children Spanish, but was frustrated by the lack of high-quality Spanish immersion programs. Building on the belief that switching back and forth between English and Spanish during the learning process makes it harder for a child to master the new language, Whistlefritz DVDs engage children in “Spanish immersion”: learning by hearing and speaking Spanish without any English translation. 
Research has shown this Spanish immersion teaching technique to be the most effective way to teach young children a second language. Each upbeat program in the Spanish for Kids DVD series combines whimsical storylines, colorful animation and graphics, delightful characters, live action footage, and irresistible Latin music that children will want to experience again and again.
A valuable teaching tool to add to any home video educational library, Spanish for Kids DVDs have received numerous national honors and accolades from iParenting Media, the Parents’ Choice Foundation, The National Parenting Center, Dr. Toy, The Dove Foundation, Learning Magazine’s Teachers’ Choice Awards and others. 


My son enjoyed the fun little Fritzi once again. The video is great for young children. They can learn while being entertained, and I think that’s the perfect way to teach little kids. And when they think learning is fun, they’ll be excited to learn new things.

The Spanish for Kids: Las Estaciones (The Seasons) DVD is geared towards children ages 2-7. The other titles in the series Spanish for Kids include Cha Cha Cha, Adentro y Afuera (Inside and Out), A Bailar! (Let’s Dance!), Vamos a Jugar (Let’s Play) and Los Animales (Animals). You can learn more about these on their website- www.whistlefritz.com. The featured DVD and these other titles are all available for  purchase online.

I think it is great when children can learn a new language.
I think the ¡A Bailar! would be great.

I learned that when children learn a second language, they develop a more sophisticated knowledge of languages in general, including their first language.
