Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2008
Professor Pocket®'s second CD, Our Hawaiian Hula Adventure, has been selected as a 2008 Parents' Choice Approved Award Winner in the Audio/Storytelling category.
This fun-filled, musical Hawaiian adventure teaches children Spanish using "catchy" original songs (plus one remake of Sana, Sana), silly, lovable characters and magical story lines. The Professor leads children on a giggly, make-believe visit to a wondrous island, where dancing blue dinosaurs and cheerful chickens learn to hula dance, surf and sing with dolphins. A companion booklet with song translations and vocabulary words accompanies the CD.
This is the second CD for Professor Pocket, who released their debut bilingual CD, Our Silly Farm Adventure in 2007.
Being named a 2008 Parents' Choice Approved Award Winner is the second prestigious media award Our Hawaiian Hula Adventure has won this year. This outstanding accomplishment is further confirmation that Professor Pocket is succeeding in their mission to make learning Spanish easy and fun for children.
By seamlessly weaving English and Spanish storytelling…and making it enjoyable …Professor Pocket CDs teach Spanish vocabulary naturally and easily, the way children learn in bilingual households.
