Great CD that I have used in my classroom as part of a rainforest topic - none of the songs are sung in English but that added to the charm of the songs and I found the children sang along anyway!
Each song has a description in the leaflet and the children enjoyed hearing what the song was a bout, especially the one about an old rubbish car!!

I bought this as a present for my 4 year old daughter. She's been driving us crazy playing the same kids music over and over, so I decided to look for some music that we might all like and not mind hearing 10 times a day...It's worked, we are all in love with the songs. I also like the booklet which tells you a bit about Brazil and about each song. My daughter enjoys listening and talking about the songs. It would have been nice to have the full lyrics as we all really want to properly sing along!
All in all, a great CD to have in any children's (and adult) collection and I'll definitely be checking out the rest of the CDs in the Putumayo series.

This was given to us a Christmas gift for my son and it has proved such a favourite that I have bought several other titles in the Putumayo series. My son will happily listen to it for ages and the songs have become like old friends to him now. The tunes are very catchy but not annoying, unlike some other children's songs, and another great advantage is that it's in Portuguese so, unless you are fluent in that language, it's hard to get any silly or irritating lyrics stuck in your head after repeated listening. All the songs are a lot of fun but special mention must go to my son's favourite "Marinheiro So". He always smiles when he hears it and you can't ask for more than that with a children's CD, can you?

Beautiful and hip! 23 Jan 2008
By sunny swimmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Our 6 month old son was given this CD as a present by his uncle one month ago, and we have all listened to it dozens of times since then. The music is both fun and beautiful, and definitely not just for children (unlike "French Playground", for example). A few tracks (such as "Halo Halo") are so delightful and pretty that my husband and I walk around singing them to ourselves. This is by far the best Putumayo Kids CD I've come across.

Great 9 April 2011

My husband grew up in Brazil so I wanted some Brazilian music for my son. He loves this CD - and so do I! Unlike so many children's CDs, this is enjoyable for adults as well. It samples many brazilian music types.

Inspiring Creative Minds Through Music 6 Jan 2012
By Y. Goodrich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love the Putumayo series of children's music. I owned a children's play center and wanted music playing in the background. Some children's song can be very, let's say, annoying for adult to be subjected to for hours at a time. I and others found these CDs to be fabulous! With music from around the world, children are exposed to different languages, rhythms and instruments. I highly recommend these CDs!

relaxing, calming, and fun 2 Oct 2012
By Amy Henry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This serves as great background music for playtime or in the classroom. My son (5) listens to it before bed...he usually sings to it as he falls asleep, even though he doesn't know the language. Mellow stuff. He also listens to some of the John Lithgow music for kids as well as the Rock a Bye Baby U2 and Rolling Stones albums, but this is by far both of our favorites.

Something about not knowing the language seems to make it more settling than if you had to think too hard about the words.
