Professor Pocket: Our Silly Farm Adventure CD~ Review and Giveaway

Contest is now closed. Congratulations to Karen! Thanks to all who entered!
I recently had the privilege of reviewing Professor Pocket! Professor Pocket is a family-owned company created to help children develop a lifelong passion for learning languages. The company produces entertaining and engaging bilingual products that children and adults can enjoy together, whether new to the Spanish language or completely fluent.
Paula and Nathalie (two sister-in-laws) designed all their products based on first hand experiences growing up and raising children in multicultural and bilingual homes.

Our Silly Farm Adventure CD is a Spanish-filled CD visiting the unique farm where Chico the Chicken was born. Professor Pocket and Desi the Dinosaur join Chico on the adventure of pigs driving tractors, cows make chocolate milk (wouldn't that be something?) and horses fly at this farm, where nothing is what it seems! I think this is a great CD to help kids let their imagination go wild, all the while being exposed to Spanish and learning fun songs. A silly bilingual storyline, 5 original songs and a remake of the popular Latin American folk song, “Los Pollitos." For kids of all ages! A Dr. Toy Best Products award winner. I my oldest son wishes he knew what they were saying in the songs, and it isn't very explanatory, but I think kids can catch on. We are still listening to our CD trying to pick up the language. I know that it is best to introduce other languages to kids at an early age, because they can pick it up easier. We found this to be true with learning Sign Language. This CD is fun, too, because it stretches me to learn Spanish. Then, my kids ask me what different words mean, and I need to pay more attention to the song, or look it up! My kids like the fun, and active songs. We like dancing to the music.
Check out the Professor Pocket website for fun coloring sheets, dot-to-dot, matching games, puzzles, bingo memory, counting sheets, and mazes! Professor Pocket also has other great items in their shop to check out. Would you like to win something from the Professor Pocket? They have generously offered a giveaway for my lucky readers! This contest is open to all readers living in the Continental United States. Just go to the Professor Pocket website and look at all their products they offer.

Thank you Professor Pocket for bringing Spanish into our home in such a fun and musical way!

Oh my my do I need to win this... I'm the proud momma to 4 adopted miracles. My oldest Naomi was adopted from Bolivia and this would be a fantastic way to bring the Spanish language back into her life. I've been looking at a ton of spanish curriculum but this looks amazing. I also have almost 3yo BBG triplets who were also adopted, they would benefit from this as well. The product I would love to have in my home is actually both the cds. What a great prize!

I already have your button on my page from a previous giveaway so does that give me extra credit automatically? lol

Thanks!
