Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I have a soon to be second grader and kindergartner, plus a three-year old. Teaching them a second language never crossed my mine. I worried about teaching them English! Truth be told though it’s probably best to introduce a second language at their age because their brains are like a sponge! Whistlefritz, the award-winning producer of Spanish for Kids, has just released a new music CD and DVD French for Kids!

I wish they would have had this when I was younger. I didn’t even dabble in learning a different language until I was in high school. It was so hard for me to pick up on. In fact it was the only subject that I truly hated. However learning a different language doesn’t have to be hard. It can be fun. Whistlefritz realized that and came out with this great set. It was catchy and enjoyable for the kids to listen to and watch! They enjoyed it and want to watch more of it. I predict by the end of the summer my oldest will be able to say something in French.
