About a year and a half ago, I won a Boca Beth blog giveaway. I posted my original impressions of the program here, last year. Since then, I've been lucky enough to win several other giveaways, and I've also made several purchases. At this point, we own nearly every product Boca Beth sells.
The premise is simple. Beth Butler, and her puppet, Boca, give little ones a head start by teaching them the Spanish words for every day things, like animals, days of the week, and things around the house. This is accomplished largely through song.
It's a fun, lighthearted approach to beginning a second language. My kids love it, particularly the two year old, who's always asking to watch Boca, or listen to a Boca cd. The cool part is that she's actually learning. She's been walking around singing Boca Beth songs to herself.
Beth has DVDs, CDs, Boca puppets, and lots of other resources available for sale at http://www.bocabeth.com/. She also has an area on her site devoted to free resources, located here. Want to learn even more about Boca Beth? You can check out her blog, follow her on Twitter, or and yep, she's on Facebook too. She's even got a Youtube channel. (While you're here, check out the felt board set I made to go along with one of her Youtube videos, here. There's a free template to download.)
By the way, she's always running a fun contest or promo somewhere, so do check her out, for more chances to win, or be notified of sales on her award winning products.
Beth is generously offering one (1) lucky reader a Boca Beth Beginner Backpack set, which retails for $49.99.
