Books + Libros: Navegamos a Galápagos/We’re Sailing to Galapagos {Giveaway}

I’ve become a big fan of Barefoot Books for several reasons. First, I love that the variety of topics their books cover: from world cultures to monsters & magicians. Then, I love how they have a growing selection of books in Spanish and French. You might remember I wrote about their Bilingual Bear series at the beginning of the year. Navegamos a Galápagos: una semana en el Pacífico by Laurie Krebs falls under their category of travel and adventure. AsRead More ...

Bilingual Board Books for Toddlers {Giveaway}

Our house is full of children’s books. They’re everywhere. In my kids’ bedrooms, in their playroom in the basement, in the family room, in my bedroom and even in the bathroom! I’d say maybe 90% of the books are in Spanish, except for the board books which are mostly in English because I’ve always had a really hard time finding board books en español. While my almost 5-year-old daughter no longer has patience for the simple stories usually told onRead More ...

Yo También Puedo Ser Presidente {Giveaway}

Regardless of your political affiliation, it’s impossible to deny that finally having an African-American become president of this nation won’t go down as one of the most significant historical events of this century. I was one of the lucky journalists to cover the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver when Barack Obama became the party’s first African-American nominee for President. I say I was lucky because I’ll never forget the feeling of hope I shared with the Latinos I wasRead More ...

Bilingual Bear Books {Giveaway}

As you might remember, my daughter and I embarked on a trilingual adventure toward the end of last year when we partnered up with Little Pim to document her progress learning French during three months. While that partnership is over, I’m making it a point to continue this journey by looking for ways to get my hands on other products, materials, books, toys, and music in French to make it more of a fun ride than a chore. One of the thingsRead More ...

El Perro y El Gato Bilingual Books {Giveaway}

El Perro y El Gato is a cartoon series featured on HBO Latino.  I have also found many episodes of this popular show on-line.  My sons and their cousins love it!  The bilingual series features a laid back cat and an energetic dog who embark on various adventures together.  The cartoon series presents lessons such as sharing and personal hygiene in a fun and bilingual manner. I was thrilled to learn that these characters are now featured in their ownRead More ...
