Sesame Street Songs in Spanish Your Bilingual Kids Will Love
I love love love Sesame Street. In addition to the things they teach kids like letters and numbers, they talk about kindness and being a good friend. What I love the most is that they highlight diversity and respect of those that may look differently or speak a different language. I love seeing muppets that are different: like muppets from different parts of the world, (like India and South Africa!), muppets that are not neuro-typical, muppets that have different types of culture and physical appearance, and course, muppets that speak different languages! I love that they have Spanish-speaking characters too and incorporate Spanish into many of their shows.
Here are my favorite Sesame Street songs in Spanish:
Sesame Street: Romeo Santos and Elmo sing “Quiero Ser Tu Amigo”
Dominican bachatero Romeo Santos paid a visit to Sesame Street to teach Elmo a very cool phrase in spanish, “quiero ser tu amigo” =I want to be your friend.
Me Llamo with Elmo, Zoe and Luis
El Abecedario with Elmo and Gina Rodriguez
I love my Hair – Spanish version with Mando
This song is perfect for anyone who wants to teach their kids their hair is beautiful just the way it is!
