Spanish Book Review: El Viaje de Magélica {Giveaway}

As a mother of two and a Kindergarten teacher, I often wonder about the imagination of children and if it is being fostered enough. We live in the era of electronics and I’m not sure our children are being given the opportunity to use their imagination the way we were when we were young. With television, video games, and educational apps, our kids don’t have to construct castles, monsters, or mountains in their minds as it’s right there on aRead More ...

¿Quién fue…? Collection Book Review {Giveaway}

I was delighted to get a chance to review some books in the “Quién fue…?” collection for Young Readers. It was so refreshing to see books written in Spanish about important characters I had learned about when I was younger. I didn’t have these growing up — everything was in English. This collection is amazing! The books are written in an interesting way with information that is both educational and entertaining.  Each book has vocabulary that is age-appropriate and containsRead More ...

Book Review: El Globo Grande y Mojado {Giveaway}

BOOK DESCRIPTION/REVIEW Growing up, I always loved comic strips. I couldn’t get enough of Condorito, Mafalda, Archi and La pequeña Lulú. Looking back, I know at least the jokes in the first two were more for an adult audience than anything else, but I still loved them! While I haven’t introduced my kids to any of these comic strips just yet, I recently got my hands on a copy of El globo grande y mojado a TOON book by Liniers, a renownedRead More ...

Sparkup: The Magical Book Reader {Giveaway}

This reading product has been so much fun to use with my three year old who is considered a “pre-reader” which basically means she is developing reading skills. For example, she is “reading” by moving her little pointer finger across the letters as the sparkup reads the book. It’s such an interesting product because it’s like new technology (sparkup recorder) meets old technology (paper books) where your little one can hear some of her favorite books read by mommy, daddy,Read More ...

Book Review & Bilingual Reading Guides: Waiting for the Biblioburro {Giveaway}

In the world of children’s books, we often speak about the window and the mirror. It is of course important for our kids’ books to serve as a mirror and for them to see themselves in what they read. On the other hand, books must also provide a window into experiences and cultures other than our own. My kids are surrounded by books. Books we own, books from the library… suffice it to say, books are everywhere. Okay, okay, weRead More ...
