Tell Me A Cuento / Cuéntame Un Story

National Public Radio
Thanks for the new version of Cuéntame un Story...My five-year-old son has a stack of Spanish kids' story books taller than Pancho Villa's statue in Tucson Park. I have spoken only Spanish to him since his birth...However, the single most useful "aid" to his learning to speak Spanish is and was Tell Me a Cuento. He listened to the tapes, both sides alternately, over and over, and I have read El Terrible Tragadabas so many times it is as imprinted in my brain as the stewardesses instructions on Aero Mosca. I think you could replace the entire U.S. bilingual education program, including the State Department crash course and Univision, with an annual new release of Tell Me A Cuento and we'd be world leaders again. It is so good, I'm not sure y'all really understand what you've got.
- NPR commentator Baxter Black, letter, July 7, 1998
