All aboard! For kids with a yen to travel farther than over the hill and through the woods to grandmother's house, Papa's Dream is a welcome invitation. Narrator Papa Lalo, Chicano rockers Los Lobos, and a passel of grandkids pile into a Mexico-bound flying balloon in celebration of the grandfather's birthday. Tots, tykes, and preteens will delight in the adventures of this flying family, and even moms and dads will appreciate the muscular feel-good rock of Los Lobos as they bop through contemporary stalwarts "La Bamba" and "Wooly Bully," as well as a handful of traditional Mexican folk tunes. --Paige La Grone

"I'M A SCHOOL TEACHER, I CAME ACROSS THIS CD QUITE BY ACCIDENT WHILE IN THE SCHOOL LIBRARY AND HAVE BEEN A "LALO GUERRERO" FAN FOR MANY YEARS. I BOUGHT HIS NEWEST CD "VAMOS A BAILAR-OTRA VEZ" AND THOUGHT I'D HEARD EVERYTHING, THAT CD CONTAINS SOME GREAT "LATIN SWING" JUMP-BLUES-ZOOT SUIT MUSIC AND NOW FOR ME TO DISCOVER THIS GEM WAS SIMPLY A GREAT TREAT. I COULD'NT BELIEVE THIS WAS THE SAME ARTIST, IS THERE NO BOUNDRIES TO THIS 83 YEAR LEGEND? "PAPA LALO" AS THE KIDS NOW CALL HIM HAS BECOME ONE OF THE FAVORITES AT THIS SCHOOL. "PAPS DREAM" w/LALO GUERRERO AND LOS LOBOS HAVE STRUCK A CORD WITH ALL THE TEACHERS AND KIDS ALIKE. THE KIDS HAVE ALSO DISCOVERED "LAS ARDILLITAS" A KIND SPANISH CHICKMUNKS FOR SPANISH SPEAKING CHILDREN AND I'M PLEASED TO INFORM YOU THAT MOST TEACHERS AT OUR SCHOOL, NOW OWN A COPY OF "VAMOS A BAILAR-OTRA VEZ" (LET' DANCE AGAIN). THIS HAS TO BE VERY RARE, WHEN ANY ARTIST CUTS ACROSS GENERATIONS LIKE THAT AND IN THE PROCESS MAKES IT LOOK SO EASY. I HOPE MR. GUERRERO CONTINUES TO DO WHAT HE'S DONE SO WELL FOR OVER 65 YEARS. GREAT CD's BUY THEM ALL, THEY'RE FUN, FUNNY AND BEST OF ALL CONTAIN SOME GREAT MUSIC. . . .YOU WON'T BE SORRY."

""Papa's Dream is a lively tale about a family that goes on a special trip. It is quite suitable for the classroom of the Beginning Level Learners of Spanish. Notice the accompanying audio CD or cassette, filled with entertaining music, as well as narration. This cassette or CD will be particularly useful for the teacher who may not be themselves fluent in Spanish.This book and accompanying cassette or CD will enhance your students learning as they are entertained and educated in the Spanish language.Great job - especially on the music!!"

"If you've ever been on a long trip with a four year old and had to endure Barney CD's or any number of mind numbing Disney CD's, this is your answer. Great rock n roll your children will love to sing along to. (Try the La La La song if you don't believe me.) What else would you expect from the our best American band."
