If you’re looking for ways to keep the Spanish language and Latin culture alive in your children, filling your home or car with Spanish and bilingual music may help pique their interests and build their Spanish vocabulary in a fun and natural way. There are actually tons of Spanish language children’s albums to choose from.
Of course, you can always make a point to continue playing Latin music like salsa, merengue and Latin pop in your home on a regular basis, but kids love music made just for them—from traditional kinder rhymes to Latin rock-inspired tunes, many artists have created full-length albums that’ll help teach your kids colors, numbers, letters and much more in Spanish.
There are even an array of classic songs that have been translated from English, songs that chronicle the Latino and immigrant experiences and songs that are just plain fun. Many of these artists also have accompanying YouTube channels that little kids go absolutely bonkers for. Here are 16 songs your little one is sure to love.
