The grandchildren love it and laugh at me when I sing, but that is the whole thing about having a good time.

I use it for an italian playgroup that I run, and moms and kids enjoy the familiar tunes!

This was the perfect introduction to Italian for my one year old. With a simple story of one girls day, numbers 1 - 10, the days of the week, and other basic vocabulary are introduced in a format that is completely entertaining. Childrens songs are sung in both English and Italian with a companion coloring book. At 18 months of age this was my son's favorite cassette to listen to in the morning.

This says it is for ages 2-12. However, I do not care how old you are. I'm in my thirties and I am loving this thing! I always wanted to learn some Italian, French, Chinese, German, and Spanish. Oh, not fluently. Just so I can say that I know "some". Thanks to this, I can now sing in Italian. It does not matter if you want to learn a little bit, "some", or become fluent. This small work/coloring book and CD combination is the perfect way to begin.

Now, about those children aged 2-12 years ... Let us say you live in America and have kids. They are going to learn English in school. However, you are proud of your family heritage and want your kids to learn that language too. Then I am here to tell you that you have GOT to give this a try!

This "Teach Me" book teaches Italian in a way kids can enjoy, through song and coloring. There are twenty children's songs on the CD. Between songs a young child speaks in Italian. Every single uttered word is in the book, so you can follow along. If you do not recognize a tune, then look in the back of the book. Everything is translated to English for you. Turn the CD on and let your kids color in the work book. Each page is made with children in mind and they beg to be colored. Here is a tip for you, make copies of the pages. This way your children may color to their hearts' content. It is also perfect for home schooling.

Here are just a few of the songs you will hear on the CD:

Are You Sleeping?

Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes

The Wheels on the Car

Alphabet

Oh! Susanna

I agree with Lorena from Milan. I am Italian as well and if you want your kid to learn Italian in the right way, especially pronunciation, stay away from this book. The leading singer has a very strong accent that makes it hard for me at times to understand what she is singing (and I am a NATIVE Italian and I teach Italian in the US so I am used to bad accents...)
Also, the songs are translated in a way that does not match the music, so when I listen to it, it gives me the chills. You can find much more authentic material around done and sang by real Italians!!

I can't say enough great things about this method. The combination of Italian conversation and easy to follow songs is fabulous. The songs exclusively in Italian are catchy and easy to pick up and the use of typical american songs in half english and half Italian is a great learning tool for kids to understand what the words mean. My 3 1/2 year old has mastered the alphabet, the days of the week and the numbers as well as all of the songs in an amazingly short period of time....My only regret is that there is no volume 2!!

This is the second CD I bought to have my baby listen to something Italian (since I am Italian) but again I was disappointed because the songs are translation of American ones and they do not really work in Italian... they do not rhyme and even the sounds of things are wrong!!! I do not know who did this CD, certainly not Italians who live or have lived there recentely!!! Absolutely not worth it!!! Not the music I want my baby to listen to!!!

This book and audio gives us alot of fun. We already know the

english tune and we just sing along in Italian. The grandchildren

love it and laugh at me when I sing, but that is the whole thing

about having a good time. Sing, laugh and clap your hands.

This book and CD are AWESOME! I have three kids: 6, 4 1/2, and 2 1/2, and they all LOVE to sing along with the songs on this CD. It has been a huge hit in our household. I think the songs are very catchy - I have even caught myself humming along with them in my head at other times during the day!

This set is perfect if you have little ones that can't read yet - my 2 1/2 year old was counting in Italian before he was couting in English!!!
