Music is a great way to introduce children to Spanish. It can help reinforce a native language or introduce children/families to traditional songs. I always recommend a good mix of translated songs and traditional Spanish songs. Parents are a great resource and many of these songs were suggested to me by the very families that come and enjoy the storytime.
