WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Whistlefritz, which produces the popular Spanish for Beginners series of children’s Spanish immersion DVDs, announced today that its latest DVD release, Adentro y Afuera (Inside & Out), has received multiple national awards, including a Parents’ Choice Silver Award from the prestigious Parents’ Choice Foundation. Since its release, Adentro y Afuera (Inside & Out) has become one of the most honored children’s DVDs of the year.

“Whistlefritz continues on its mission to bring the gift of learning Spanish to children and their families,” said founder and CEO Heidi Stock. “The many organizations that have honored Adentro y Afuera hold very high bars and have stringent standards, so we are grateful to receive this type of recognition from so many experts on excellence in children’s media.”

In addition to the recent Parents’ Choice Silver Award, Adentro y Afuera has also won the following awards:

— iParenting Media “Outstanding Products for 2009”

— The National Parenting Center 2009 Seal of Approval

— Dr. Toy’s Best Play and Learn Vacation Products

— The Dove Foundation’s Family-Approved Seal

— An endorsement by KIDS FIRST!

Available nationwide, Spanish for Beginners: Adentro y Afuera seamlessly blends live action with colorful animation and engaging characters, including the vibrant teacher Maria who guides children as they navigate the lively world of Whistlefritz. Ninos and ninas will be saying Hola! to Spanish in no time as the series’ use of stories, music, play, and dance make it an invaluable and entertaining teaching tool. Through the use of proven language immersion methods — where kids learn Spanish by hearing and speaking it without any English translation — Spanish for Beginners stimulates, educates, and allows kids to quickly and easily make the language all their own.

Founded in 2006, Whistlefritz was started by a mom who wanted to teach her own children Spanish. Frustrated by the lack of high-quality Spanish immersion programs, she decided to create her own Spanish DVDs and CDs for children. And so Whistlefritz was born and two award-winning DVD titles, Vamos a Jugar (Let’s Play) and Los Animales (Animals), were released.

In Spanish for Beginners: Adentro y Afuera, fun-loving kids join teacher Maria and her friend, Fritzi the mouse, as they learn all about the house, including the names of rooms and household objects. The whole gang then ventures outside to explore the playground while they learn Spanish. While the program is designed for children ages 2-7, the DVD includes a translation guide for parents who may also be learning Spanish for the first time, making Whistlefritz perfect for the whole family!

Also available in the Whistlefritz Spanish language series for children are:

— Spanish for Beginners: Vamos a Jugar (Let’s Play), which received a 2007 iParenting Media Award, Parents’ Choice Approved Award, The National Parenting Center’s 2007 Seal of Approval, and Creative Child Magazine’s 2007 Preferred Choice Award

— Spanish for Beginners: Los Animales (Animals), which received a Parents’ Choice Approved Award, The National Parenting Center’s 2007 Seal of Approval, a 2007 Honors Award by the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA), a KIDS FIRST! endorsement, and Creative Child Magazine’s 2007 Seal of Excellence

— A Bailar! (Let’s Dance!), a music CD, which received a 2008 iParenting Media Award, a 2008 Honors Award by the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA), The National Parenting Center’s 2008 Seal of Approval, a Parents’ Choice Approved Award and an endorsement by KIDS FIRST!
