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.

The 2009 Holiday season has officially begun and the conversation with children during this time is all about Santa Claus.  My girl is only two, so this is the first year she’s uderstanding the concept. Her first introduction to the man from the North Pole was with this new Disney movie that came out this week:  Santa Buddies-The Legend of Santa Paws. It’s basically the classic Christmas story but this one features the Buddies-those adorable and super popular talking puppies. Read More ...
