Canticos (“little songs”) is a branded collection of the most beloved nursery rhymes and songs from all over the Spanish-speaking world. Created by Susie Jaramillo, Canticos features endearing characters brought to life through books, apps, sing-a-long videos and more. The brand’s mission is to foster multilingual learning that promotes child development by building fine motor skills, language, music, and math skills.
Since its launch in 2016, Canticos has received incredible recognition in the publishing space. The first of the series, Little Chickies / Los Pollitos was named a “Best Book of the Year” by Kirkus Reviews, and received 3 starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews, School Library Journal, and Publishers Weekly.
This year, four of the critically-acclaimed favorites will be available in a new board book format at Target starting on October 18, 2017. All the books come with their respective FREE apps and sing-along videos available on YouTube. Canticos gives back to the community through book donations to help low-income families in need.
