ALERTA is an acronym for A Learning Environment Response To All, a curriculum for young children developed at Columbia University. ALERTA placed a value on multiculturalism and bilingualism, and this program of 31 songs, performed by noted children's singer and guitarist Suni Paz, is devoted to songs from Latin America and the Caribbean. These are really brief tracks -- as short as 30 seconds, and only longer than two minutes in a couple of cases -- with both Spanish and English lyrics. They're sung capably by Paz, sometimes with sympathetic, unobtrusive accompanying vocalists, sometimes a cappella, and usually on guitar, although piano is also used. This LP and another Paz album on Folkways, Canciones para el Recreo: Children's Songs for the Playground, have been combined onto one CD by Smithsonian Folkways. That reissue has liner notes which print the lyrics, and also include English translations of Spanish lyrics.
