Putumayo Kids Latin Dreamland CD Review and Giveaway

I love music from Putumayo Kids! They are a great company that produces high quality music for kids that is both multicultural and educational. I received the Putumayo Kids Latin Dreamland CD for free to facilitate this review.

Latin Dreamland is a new album by Putumayo Kids that takes you on a dreamy lullaby journey through South America. This soothing CD has both traditional and new songs that are great for relaxing and for bedtime. I love this CD. It was nice to listen to when winding my kids down for the night. The only song I recognized was the last one. I am ashamed to say that I took 3 years of Spanish in high school and don't remember too much of it. I guess the saying that if you don't use it you lose it is correct. Fortunately for me the track note insert was filled with information about each track in English :)

The first song is about a little bunny and the lullaby its mother sings to lull it to sleep. The second is about the moon peaking in to see if the little one is asleep. The third is about the night. The forth is a love song about a pretty gardener who is sad because one of her flowers died. The fifth one is a sad story about a dove who sings for his long lost love. The sixth one is about echos in the Andes Mountains. The seventh song is sung to the children of the south from colder climates and is called Cradle of Ice. The eighth song is about a kind of tree that lives in the rainforest in Brazil and the Amazon and how it has survived a fire. The ninth song is about a waltz. The tenth song is actually traditionally sung in a style called ranchera and is played faster, but this is done slower here in a lullaby by the artist.

I'd love to hear & have the Brazian Playground CD since I have 2 kids adopted from Latin America.
