This is so great!  I loved to see that the children were enjoying this process SO much, and just having a wonderful time!  This is a really great addition to your collection of videos; it really shows how this builds a community of learners and how it helps the children bond.  They were all very supportive of each other, and nobody cried when the others laughed!  Fabulous job, Arturo!

Kindergarten Teacher and Creator of HeidiSongs.com
Introduction
I am a credentialed Reading Specialist with over 25 years experience in the Primary classroom. After years of developing my own curriculum, my peers urged me to present this material at the California Kindergarten Conference, which generated an overwhelming response to publish my program. I have since grown this basic curriculum into the 'HeidiSongs' product line and website, which now includes both music and videos, plus presentations and keynotes nationwide.

I absolutely love this place, and so do my doggies! They are SO friendly and sweet here! My dogs run in with their tails wagging and greet their groomers and washers with a big kiss! They know my babies by name, and obviously love them. I won't go anywhere else! I use their Splash and Dash service, and it is AWESOME and SUCH a great deal! Love it!
