Canticos: Sharing culture and building connections through music

Music is a useful tool to expose kids to language and culture. Singing to or with your child is not only fun, it’s also a way to connect and introduce words, concepts, and sounds.

Susie Jaramillo is the co-founder of Canticos, a company that creates bilingual books, apps and videos for young children based on Latin American nursery rhymes. In this episode, she talks to us about what led her to start her business, how she feels her products create understanding among cultures and her tips for raising bilingual kids.

In May, Canticos became the first bilingual series to form part of Nick Jr.’s preschool app, Noggin. And one of Susie’s books, Esqueletitos/Little Skeletons, was recently named a finalist for an International Latino Book Award.
