Hooray! A new release from Putumayo Kids!
Putumayo Kids Presents: European Playground, the newest addition to the incredible playground series of music CD’s, is due for release on May 19th!
If your summer vacation plans don’t include a trip to Europe this year, you can expose your children to a taste of European cultures through the music and languages on European Playground!
This world music CD for kids features 15 songs from different European nations, including Germany, Sweden, Belgium, England, Denmark, Hungary, France, Greece, Scotland, Portugal, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, and Ireland.
Your child can listen to music in a variety of styles, sung in the native tongues of the nations from which the songs originate.
The liner notes are printed in four different languages!
As an adult who has studied a second and third language, I truly believe that one cannot fully understand a culture without understanding the language attached to it.
European Playground is a light-hearted, effortless way to introduce your children to other countries and cultures!
It is so beneficial for children of all ages to have exposure to other languages. We have long known that music helps kids build brain power, but don’t forget that music is also something FUN that you and your children can enjoy together!
Take a look at this kooky music video from the “Change Song”, sung by a group from England.
You can order Putumayo Kids Presents: European Playground on Amazon.com; the release date is May 19, 2009!
