Soar With Reading for the Second Year in a Row! {Giveaway}

As multicultural families, we all know that travel is an important part of raising well-rounded kids. When we can, hopping on a JetBlue flight is a great way to expose them to other worlds. But even when we’re too busy to leave home, we can take the niños on plenty of aventuras just by opening a book. For the second year, JetBlue is showing its support for literary adventures through its Soar With Reading campaign. Along with PBS Kids, JetBlueRead More ...

Books & Libros: ¡A Celebrar el Fourth of July!

At the end of a hot summer day (especially the sweltering ones there have been this year!), there is nothing quite like retreating to the air conditioning and curling up with a good story. Nothing could be quite as symbolic of America’s multicultural traditions as reading about them in both English and español! In honor of el cumpleaños of our great country, here is a list of some heartwarming, pride-inducing, and informative bilingual books for Independence Day. Click on the individual links or seeRead More ...

5 Spanglish Summer Reads for Young Children

As the daughters of two writers and teachers, our niñas really can’t escape the world of words and books. They fill our bookshelves and theirs, spill out of drawers and pile up on most of the surfaces of our house!  One of our great joys is finding beautiful Spanish or English/Spanish bilingual children’s book for their collection. Since some of you might be embarking on summer reading, I thought I’d share some of our very favorites. Each of these isRead More ...

Scholastic Parent Circle: Mi primera enciclopedia del mundo {Giveaway}

Vanessa is such a curious child and she’s definitely much more interested in all topics related to science than I was at her age — or ever, really. I’m not sure where the fascination comes from, but I’m making sure to nature it (although I know very little about the subject) because I would never want to influence her with my own likes and dislikes. Luckily, her father LOVES science too, so they get to spend a lot of timeRead More ...

Books & Libros: The Many Faces of Max {Giveaway}

I recently found out about a bilingual publishing company I’d never heard about when I was sent their new children’s books for 2012 and I’m happy to report that I really like what Lectura Books is doing. Founded back in 2001, Lectura Books’ main goal is parent involvement when it comes to reading. To that end, its most well-known program,The Latino Family Literacy Project, aims to establish a daily reading routine through age-appropriate books that help children (and their parents)Read More ...

School Libraries Getting Makeovers {Giveaway}

In 2007 Target, in partnership with The Heart of America Foundation, launched the Target School Library Makeover. The goal was, and still is, to help more children read proficiently by the end of third grade. So how exactly does Target help children accomplish this? The program helps revive school libraries across the country that are in need by providing them with a new surplus of books and technology that will surely get kids excited about reading. This year’s program willRead More ...

March Scholastic Parent Circle: Salsa for Kittens & Puppies {Giveaway}

As soon as I put the Salsa para gatitos y perritos CD in our car’s CD player, my kids started swaying to the music. And who wouldn’t? This magical CD contains 15 songs that are alternatively sung in English and Spanish. The rhythms are catchy and the lyrics easy to memorize so that even little children like my 2-year-old can sing-along. I was so enthralled by the quality of the music of my pick for this month’s Scholastic Parent CircleRead More ...

Multicultural Book List from Reading is Fundamental

Though we do our best to offer you easy access to Spanish and bilingual books, we all have to admit it’s still far more of a challenge to find good Latino-themed children’s literature than it is to find great Anglo-centric books. That’s why we love it when we see someone else participating in the search and producing great resources for Latinos and other ethnic groups. The same organization that brought us the Read Early, Read ALOUD! campaign has just releasedRead More ...
