Allons Danser! (Let's Dance!) CD Review

I have reviewed a DVD from Whistlefritz before. They contacted me once again to review a CD. I jumped at the chance. We listen to music a lot. I know when it comes time to take a trip this summer we'll be listening to tunes in the car.

Allons Danser! (Let's Dance!) CD is in French. There are times when I need some background noise at home. That noise keeps my kids occupied. What's really great is that they learn, while they listen!

When I was in school I had a hard time learning Spanish. I think I struggled so much because it was so dry when it was taught to me. Whistlefritz has so many fun language DVDs and CDs that make learning fun!

I was thinking the CD might be cheesy, but it's not at all. It was so it's easy to get in the groove of singing it. My kids recognized La Tête, Les Épaules, which is just like Head Shoulders Knees and Toes, and Le Vieux MacDonald, which is just like Old MacDonald, and more. We all started cracking up with Le Vieux MacDonald. The animal noises were just funny to us.

About the CD:
  • There are 20 tracks.
  • All the songs are in French.
  • Some of the songs are traditional songs with a French twist, while others are new. 
  • It's $14.99, which is a great price.
  • It's newly released. It just came out this month!
  • The artists are: Marie-Louise Desage and Didier Prossaird.

About Whistlefritz:

A mom started in 2006 to teach her son Spanish. The best time to learn another language is when children are young. Many school do not introduce another language until children are in middle school, or high school. Their main focuses are fun and education. They have free lesson plans that you can download. I think that's so helpful. Just to let you know how helpful they've been, they've won over 50 awards. It's less expensive than other language programs.

Mica Was Inspired by the Brochure They Sent Us That He Made This:

Happy Easter!!!

I hope everyone that celebrates Easter has fun!

A few nights ago we dyed Easter eggs. It was our first time doing this at home.

Isaak was impatient, and only stuck his eyes in the dye for the matter of seconds. Mica kept mixing all the colors together, and wanting the color I was using. No we didn't end up with perfection.

Despite the craziness, the boys had a whole lot of fun. That's what was ideal anyhow. 

Isaak was so excited to dye Easter eggs!

 Mica was in a silly mood. Note the silly face he's making. What a goof!

Both boys were fascinated about the dye pills fizzing in the vinegar.

The end result. Isaak wanted his to stay out on display. I said, "Nope they have to go in the refrigerator. We'll eat them later." His eyes swelled up with tears. He said, "But I want to keep them forever." Poor little guy!
