Nostalgia favorites of Mexican children's songs
John Estill ( | Millersburg, Ohio, USA | 07/16/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The present volume ("Platinum Series -- 20 Hits", in English) is a collection of favorite children's songs by the Mexican songwriter-singer known as Cri-Cri, El Grillito Cantor ("Cri-Cri, the singing cricket"). Cri-Cri, in real life, is Francisco Gabilondo Soler.Cri-Cri sings of many childish things -- ducks who take their ducklings shopping ("La Patita"), animal orchestras ("Orquesta de Animales"), piglets at bedtime ("Cochintos Dormilones"). He animates inanimate objects such as the pot and the griddle ("La Olla y El Comal") and the fountain suffering from the heat ("El Chorrito"). And he recognizes the relationship between children and their grandparents in "Di Porqué" (Tell me why) and "El Ropero" (the wardrobe).I learned some of these songs while caring for Mexican nieces and nephews, and sang them to my own children; I was delighted to find them available now on comp! ! act disk. For me, and for many Mexicans, this will be a trip down memory lane. Children (of whatever age) who are learning Spanish will also enjoy this volume."
Took me back to my youth... Pure genius.

"I was only a child barely learning how to speak, when I first heard Cri Cri. He touches you in the simplest of ways, yet reaches you in the deepest of ways. Francisco was ahead of his time, and will be remembered always as a master of entertainment."
Excellent and sweet CD for children and all the ages! | Guatemala | 07/14/1998

"Oír cualquiera de las composiciones de "Cri-Cri" es toda una tierna experiencia. Su música es preciosa y pegadiza. Su letra es dulce y educativa.Todos aquellos niños y adultos que hablan o están aprendiendo español deberían disfrutar de este CD o de cualquiera de los otros de "Cri-Cri". ¡Lo mejor en música infantil en español!"
