lucky diazFantastico! Performed by Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band. CD. 22 min. Lucky Diaz Music. 2013. ISBN unavail. $9.99. PreS–Gr 2–The Los Angeles kindie-pop group Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band are back with their most unique album to date. Performed all in Spanish, the eight songs are a fantastic mix of fun, upbeat melodies, and clever lyrics. Rollicking songs about an astronaut cat, a blue bear, and three mice, combined with those about dancing and counting will leave children with a smile on their faces. The lively performances by the musicians create a feeling of excitement and joy. Whether or not listeners know Spanish, they will enjoy dancing and singing along with this album. The collection could easily be used in a classroom where Spanish is being taught, during story times, or just for family fun. A must have for every collection.–Veronica De Fazio,Plainfield Public Library District,IL
