Professor Pocket: Our Hawaiian Hula Adventure (CD)

Professor Pocket: Our Hawaiian Hula Adventure is a bilingual CD containing a Spanish/English storyline. There are seven songs and lots of dialogue that switches back and forth between the two languages. There is also a small booklet that contains song translations and vocabulary words.

This CD is not specifically for homeschoolers, but I think you could easily use it as a supplement to your Spanish class. It is a very fun CD that could be used with all homeschool styles.

My kids and I enjoyed listening to this CD in our car during road trips. They loved the fun storyline, which centers on Professor Pocket and her friends, Desi and Chico, and their exciting trip to Hawaii. They also really liked the songs, which were easy to pick up! This was a CD that they could listen to over and over.

There were two things I did not like about this CD. Some of the characters' accents were a bit American instead of Latin when they were speaking Spanish. Also, some of the vocabulary words were unfamiliar to me. As a native Spanish speaker, I thought the vocabulary words could have been a bit more universal rather than country specific.

If you want a fun, lighthearted CD to keep your kids entertained, then this would be a great buy for you. But if you are looking for something to really teach your kids Spanish, you should look elsewhere.
