Bilingual is Better

ReadMe: Let me Help!

My daughter is at that stage when she actually thinks helping is fun—well, at least most of the times. When we come back from the doing groceries, I usually ask her to help me carry some of the less heavy bags from the garage to the kitchen. Once we’re there, she helps me put away some of the stuff in both the fridge and the pantry. Not only does this make her feel useful—and big—which is great for her self-esteem,Read More ...

Lover Boy: A Bilingual Counting Book

I come from a family of besucones. In other words, I’m surrounded by those who love to give and receive tons of kisses. I’ve never been too much into it myself, that is, until my daughter was born almost four years ago and since then, I haven’t been able to stop showering her with kisses every chance I get. She’s a besucona too, so this has not been a problem. I still remember the first time she gave a “real”Read More ...

We {heart} Pocoyó {Giveaway}

We really do.  The proof is that, over a year ago, we chose a Pocoyó video in Spanish, El Baile de Pocoyó, as our very first Video of the Week.  I can still remember the dancing parties my girl, husband and I would have in the living room when Pocoyó came on (We record it from Discovery Familia. You can also watch him on YouTube.) That´s why I accepted the offer to receive a collection of Pocoyó books to reviewRead More ...

ReadMe: Poems to Dream Together

I don’t like having to fess up, but I’ve never been a very big fan of poetry. I don’t want to sound ignorant. I’m a writer. I know about the power and beauty of words. I just think that it has to do with the fact that I was never really exposed to it. I want the opposite to be the case for my niños, so I’ve been searching for the kind of children’s poetry that would engage them. NowRead More ...

Two Little Libros: Sea Animals and Jungle Animals + Giveaway

Talk about Spanglish…I love the title of this collection from Bilingual Readers. One of my favorite things from this bilingual publishing house, which was born only last year in Spain, is the way they package their products. Their books have been a hit at our home, in part, because of the cool way they are presented. The Two Little Libros collection is no different. The two, 16-page board books come in a sturdy slipcase which already makes them different and interesting forRead More ...

ReadMe: The Best Mariachi in the World

Congratulations to the winner #16 – Sand! Since we launched ReadMe–our monthly literary series–last summer, I have been exposed to bilingual books and publishing houses that I didn’t even know existed. The good news is that there is a lot of really great stuff out there, which you probably already knew if you’ve been reading these entries since we began. One of the things I like the most is that many of these books not only showcase our Latino cultureRead More ...

ReadMe: Mimí’s Parranda

Although my husband doesn’t get to read to our daughter as much as they’d both like to, a few nights ago he was home before her bedtime and she begged him to read her the new book we had just received to review for this month’s ReadMe: Mimí’s Parranda. It was a great pairing because the book is about a parranda – an awesome, fun and musical tradition that takes place during Christmas in Puerto Rico, my husband’s homeland. SoRead More ...
