I am a general music teacher in New Haven, CT. I'm so glad that I found your website: I recently downloaded "What is Ragaeton" "Come On In," and "Polito Chicken," but I need the lyrics, as I'm not literate in Spanish!
I would be able to teach these to my little ones next week. I love the grooves, and the educational value is so high. We're doing a little unit on Spanish songs, and they will love these!

Caribbean Fiesta for Kids
I love this album and so does my son! I also used it on a day I was teaching at my son's preschool and it was hit with the other kids as well. There is a good variety of rhythms and tempos in the different songs, and their use of both Spanish and English lyrics makes the songs more appealing to children who don't speak much Spanish, (or if they're like my son, they insist they do speak Spanish, which I certainly want to encourage).

Dancing in the Living Room!
Caribbean Fiesta for Kids! completely won me and my increasingly hard to please six-year-olds over. We sang along to El Coquí (also on the first album), and we all loved the songs that were new to us. Chequi Morena had us dancing in the living room and we sang the Spanish Counting Blues with gusto. And the Pollito Chicken Rap had us shouting, “pollito, chicken!!!” for days on end. It was great fun, and now that we’ve enjoyed it at home, it’s earned a spot in the car.
