Beloved by kids, parents, & educators, Canticos makes learning fun with bilingual (English & Spanish)  books, digital apps, and sing-along videos featuring an adorable cast of animal characters.

All over the world, nursery songs have been used to introduce young children to early literacy and math concepts, to build social skills through singing and dancing, and to create cross-generational bonds through the preservation of these commonly known songs.

Canticos combines the power of nursery rhymes with the benefits of bilingualism to provide your child with an innovative learning experience.

Susie Jaramillo

President - Chief Creative Officer

Susie is the co-founder of Encantos Media, a purpose-driven entertainment studio dedicated to bringing beautiful, culturally relevant, and engaging content to diverse audiences across multiple platforms. She is also the creator, author and illustrator of Canticos.

Susie is a creative visionary, an artist, an entrepreneur, and a mom. When others’ see problems, Susie sees opportunity and builds beautiful and creative solutions. This is, in fact, how she entered the world of publishing as she couldn’t find books that helped her kids relate to her culture in a deeper way, with true cultural roots. And so Canticos was born.

Susie is passionate about building Canticos into an inspirational brand that will transcend generations.

The goal of Canticos is to bring families together through a shared love of languages, music and culture. I wanted to create something beautiful and fun to celebrate nursery rhymes with kids of all backgrounds. I couldn’t be more excited to share this with you.
