Time to say ‘Gracias’

As I mentioned over at SpanglishBaby today, now that my three-year-old daughter is able to kind of understand the meaning of Thanksgiving, we’ve been talking about it a lot. Since she is a big book-lover, I was very thankful when we received Pat Mora’s latest book, “Gracias/Thanks” last week because it instantly became a great way to explain what this beautiful holiday is all about. As you probably know by now, we’re are big fans of Mora and this bilingualRead More ...

ReadMe: The Dog Who Loved Tortillas

This giveaway is now closed! Thanks for participating and CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER #6 Chrysa!! My three-year-old daughter, Vanessa, loves our black Lab, Max, even when he slobbers all over her just to say hello. But, she hasn’t been alive long enough to know/understand certain things about him – like the fact that, left to his own devices, he pretty much can chew away anything in sight. I’m talking from shoes to his plastic water bowl. Unfortunately, this has meantRead More ...

Now I Know My ABC’s

It’s all about the ABC’s for my daughter these days and nothing could be more luring than a set of colorful and sturdy cards with both the English and Spanish alphabet all packed into a nifty red box that begs to be opened. Another very cool product from Bilingual Readers. The Easy Alphabet!/¡Abecedario Fácil! is a great way for children to learn both alphabets and to enrich their vocabulary in both languages. There are 27 cards in the box andRead More ...

Let the animals come to life

Have you heard of something called Scanimation? It’s a pretty cool technique which makes the images of this book, ¡Al Galope!, seem as if they’re moving. Artist, inventor, filmmaker, Rufus Butler Seder, came up with this animation process described as “video without a screen.” Translated from the #1 New York Times bestseller children’s book, Gallop!, the Spanish version will have your kiddos thinking they’re watching a movie instead of reading a book. Not to mention, they’ll learn a bunch ofRead More ...

Big Art for Little Hands

That’s exactly the way the publishers describe this Frida Kahlo Coloring Book for children: Big art for little hands.  And this is one I really want to get my own hands on.  I can even imagine myself begging my two-year old to sit down and color with me the fascinating 32 pages on this book.  She would probably be over it after roughly squiggling undefined lines with a couple of colors, while I sit there patiently trying to recreate theRead More ...

ReadMe: Marina and the Little Green Boy

This contest is now closed. We’ll announce the winner shortly! We’re doing something a little bit different for this month’s installment of ReadMe. Instead of showcasing a book’s author, we’d actually like to introduce you to a brand new bilingual publishing house which we support 100%. First because we truly believe in what the publishers are doing and second because their products are different and, simply put, cool and innovative! It’s called Bilingual Readers – we’ve linked to their blog’sRead More ...

ReadMe: Abuelos

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner: Melissa Davis! One of the parts I love the most about SpanglishBaby is all the discoveries I’ve made of things I would’ve never known existed otherwise–this has been particularly true in the area of books. As you probably know by now, back in July we launched our newest monthly series, which we call: ReadMe. We have teamed up with several Bilingual/Spanish children’s book publishers to bring you a review of aRead More ...

ReadMe: I Know the River Loves Me

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered and for all the wonderful comments. CONGRATULATION TO OUR WINNER: KALEN! I can’t deny it. I was super excited when I got the package from Children’s Book Press (CPB) containing the book they had sent me to review for our second installment of our new monthly literacy series: ReadMe. I had already had the pleasure of enjoying several of their books from our local library and I couldn’t wait toRead More ...
