Bilingual is Better

SB Finds : Books + Libros

Video of the Week||Moving Picture Books

Lately we’ve been writing much about how reading to and with your children is one of the most effective ways to enhance their overall language and cultural skills, but especially about how beneficial it as an activity to promote second language learning in a fun way. Surely, your child has a book she’s especially fond of and loves to be read over and over (and over) again.  She loves to hear how you imitate the sounds of the animals, howRead More ...

Handstand Kids Mexican Cookbook

Roxana first found this cookbook when she wrote about new bilingual toys for 2009.

El Día de los Niños/El Día de los Libros + Giveaway

Congratulations to the winner: Donna Hunt! Thanks for all who entered. Growing up, I definitely remember celebrating El Día del Niño. I don’t particularly remember the date of this celebration, but that’s probably because it takes place on a different date in each of the Latin American countries I lived in as a child – Perú, México and Argentina. I do remember, however; that it was “our” day and everything revolved around us, just like when everything revolves around mamiRead More ...

Jorge Ramos…On Raising Bilingual Children

This contest is now closed. Congratulations to the winner of this great book: Michelle. I was pretty excited when I found out journalist Jorge Ramos had written his first children’s book last year and I was even happier when I found it at my local library. As a fellow journalist, I have always admired the work of Ramos–Univision Network’s nightly news veteran anchor–and although I have only read a couple of his books, (he’s written eight), I’ve always been interestedRead More ...
