Cute song collection
SING WITH ME/CANTA CONMIGO is a fun collection of bilingual children’s songs. The book includes the lyrics to six popular songs (The Alphabet Song, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, The Wheels on the Bus, etc.) in both Spanish and English. While some songs continue on multiple pages, shorter songs are self-contained. Each page contains a full-color and detailed image related to the song lyrics being sung.

What I loved: These are songs that most preschoolers will likely already know, but they will still enjoy singing along with their caregivers. The illustrations add some fun, with plenty of details to explore and characters to enjoy on each page. I really appreciated how the longer songs, such as Wheels on the Bus and Old MacDonald, were broken up across the pages, so there was plenty to visually enjoy throughout the longer songs. The lyrics were in both Spanish and English, so caregivers could sing one or both of them. The book ends with Twinkle, Twinkle, so it has the feel of winding down before bedtime as well.

Final verdict: A fun bilingual book of children’s songs, SING WITH ME/CANTA CONMIGO is a charming illustrated book of songs little ones will love. Great for toddlers and preschoolers.
