I’m getting myself ready to travel with my daughter, Camila, to El Salvador where we will spend one whole month with la familia. It will be such an amazing full-immersion experience for her right now at the age of three. I will have many stories to share from there and I’m planning on keeping you all up-to-date on all the language and cultural experiences (hope not shocks!) that she’ll be going through. Especially since I’m signing her up at a neighborhood pre-school in the mornings!
So, what does my trip have to do with the Video of the Week? Nothing directly, but I got inspired to search for the Spanish version of Curious George because my Salvadoran niece is crazy about him and I’ve been buying some encarguitos she’s requested. I realized we’ve never had “Jorge el Curioso” as our video of the week, and it well deserves it!
I clearly remember having two favorite books in English while growing up in El Salvador: Danny and the Dinosaur and Curious George. (The links are to the Spanish versions.) I read them, and read them, and read them. And, I just read them both to my daughter last week. Full circle. Bellísimo.
In honor of a timeless classic, beautiful in English and Spanish, here´s a clip from Jorge el Curioso for you and your child to enjoy.
