Posted by: | 13 Comments

Let’s face it: it’s harder to get our kids interested in reading when summer is in full swing.

But it’s also because of all the proven cognitive benefits of speaking more than one language as well as the financial advantages. I recently got the opportunity to show my 6-year-old daughter Vanessa exactly how it pays toRead More ...
