Product Description

Who wants to be an astronaut? Or a vet? Or go on a jungle adventure? Then join up with El Perro y El Gato, two best friends who go from an under the sea encounter with an octopus to a not-quite-ordinary trip to the supermarket. Wherever they go, it’s always fun, and always in English and in Spanish. This dog and cat are going places!

Review

El Perro (Dog) and El Gato (Cat) are bilingual best buddies. El Perro is always keyed up and El Gato is forever low-key, but that doesn't hinder their friendship. Together, the two share adventures that reinforce imagination, cooperation, and common daily routines and responsibilities, all while communicating through an energetic mix of English and Spanish. It's a more intensive approach to bilingual education than some programs that simply repeat a few foreign-language words here and there, and it's done so seamlessly here that little viewers won't have any trouble following the storylines. This DVD collection includes seven vignettes-which add up to 24 minutes of program content-placing El Perro and El Gato in settings that range from an ordinary supermarket to outer space. The animation will appeal to viewers in the targeted two-to seven age range, offering bright colors and uncluttered lines, and the storylines are paced just right to hold their interest. As an added bonus, the quirky humor usually includes some sly, dry tidbits for the adults in the room. -- Gina Catanzarite ©2012 Parents' Choice

This is a great DVD! I try to play it daily in the background, just to pick up on things and I find myself sitting and watching every minute. This happens every time. When they go back and forth between English and Spanish it helps me learn the context, pronunciation and when to use the masculine, or feminine version of the word. I also find the humor in the show to be great. I'm sure it's great for kids, I don't have any, it was just for me. Warning: this is not rosetta stone. Its' a funny, clever way to learn Spanish.

My daughter and hubby have expanded their vocabulary quite a bit by viewing these cd's. They toggle between English and Spanish with each phrase. They also do a summary at the end just in case you missed something. Nicely done.

My son is 6 and attends a Spanish immersion school, we have a hard time finding fun kids shows in Spanish, especially ones that introduce words to read. He loves El Gato y El Perro, it's funny and short, explains enough that I can follow it too, and has words to read in English and Spanish! We love it! He is asking for more DVDs so I'm getting more!

I am an older sister of two siblings that love and adore this show. I find myself being really surprised in how well they are able to use what they learned from the show in real life. I got this gift for my younger brother on his birthday and I know I will be getting more for them both for the Holidays.
