Few shows have the ability to get you up and running like LazyTown can.  And that´s the whole point.  The high energy that comes from the music, the colors and the adrenaline-filled pace of the show can be addictive for little girls and boys. The friends at V-me sent me a dvd of the Spanish-language version of LazyTown´s first episode “Bienvenidos a LazyTown” to watch and review.  My girl, now 2 1/2 years, happily gave up her normally scheduled doseRead More ...

It’s extremely gratifying when I get word that a respected brand and/or company has taken the decision to create materials which are relevant to our Spanish-English bilingual children. It’s one more step towards creating the awareness that our children are growing up in a global and diverse community with its own set of needs.
