Music: Sueña un Poquito - Dream A Little Album
Sueña un Poquito (Dream a Little) is Nathalia's 2nd bilingual children's music album. Nathalia’s new album has 10 songs in ‘Spanglish’ and even includes learning planets in Spanish! The album represents true collaboration songwriting with her husband Brian McLaughlin, and Nathalia says ‘the album comes from the heart’. She says her inspiration for Sueña un Poquito (Dream a Little) came from her oldest daughter who is in the ‘tween’ stage. Her daughter still had that childhood ‘magic’ of living split between a dreamland of fairies and believing in Santa, while at the same time growing up into a teenager. Watching her daughter caught between a kid and young adult world, while capturing the energy of her toddler boy, the album Sueña un Poquito (Dream a Little) was born.Songs: Los Planetas, El Amazonas, Magical, Shine, Norah's World, Pop Pop Pop, Shake Them Bones, Tu Dia Puedes Cambiar, There's No One Like You, Sueño Feliz
Recommended Ages: Ages 3 to 7 years old
Learning music via song is something Nathalia says comes easily for children. ‘It’s a lot more fun than sitting in class and is a lot less stressful’. In her experience as a music therapist, Nathalia says music engages different parts of the brain, and the way people process music (melody), is similar to the way we learn language. We all remember learning our ‘ABC’s with the alphabet song!
