Book Review: The Worldwide Adventures of Rohini Molini — A Short Trip to Spain {Giveaway}

Rohini Molini is a 5-year-old girl who goes on short adventures to a different countryRead More ...

Review: My Big Sister/Mi hermana mayor

As those of you with preschoolers and early elementary schoolers may have discovered, it’s difficult to find bilingual books to transition them from the baby board book phase to the early readers phase.

My Big Sister/Mi hermana mayor by Samuel Caraballo is the bilingual story of a little boy named Pablito, who spends the days with his big sister, Anita, whileRead More ...

5 Bilingual Books for Children’s Poetry Day

  With few exceptions, I’ve never been a huge poetry fan — mostly because I wasn’t really exposed to poems growing up, other than the obligatory ones for school. But I love the beauty, repetition and rhythm in children’s poetry and how great they can be to explain certain concepts in simple terms. To celebrate Children’s Poetry Day on March 21, I wanted to share some of our favorite bilingual children’s poetry books: Poems to Dream Together/Poemas para Soñar Juntos by FranciscoRead More ...

Arte Kids Bilingual Book Series {Giveaway}

Before I share about the creative people and organizations that put these wonderful little bilingual books together I must say that my two-and-a-half bilingual baby girl approves! They are perfect for my vibrant explorer who is busy putting all the words she knows in Spanish (with some English) together because the illustrations are not only unique, but strategically placed to provoke conversation. For instance, in the Colores Everywhere! book the colors white and black are on side-by-side pages. On theRead More ...
