Bilingual is Better

Go UP to reach your dreams

We’ve been blown away by the beauty and the captivating characters of UP,  Disney*Pixar’s newest movie to hit the home-entertainment stands in full force today, November 10th.  When it came out in theaters, amongst critical buzz and massive audience approval, and took its righteous first place at the box office on its opening weekend, I was acting nonchalant as if I really didn’t care that I didn’t yet have an excuse to take my then toddler girl to the movies. Read More ...

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

An interesting fact about the third installment of the popular Ice Age saga Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (or Ice Age 3) is that since its premiere in theaters worldwide this summer, it has made three times more revenue internationally than it has in the U.S.  In some foreign countries it has been the biggest hit since the movie “Titanic” made impact.  Such is the case in many Latin American countries where the film has been released in SpanishRead More ...

Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom

I don’t know of any preschooler who is not totally into Dora the Explorer, do you? And, if you’re raising bilingual children, she’s the perfect character to support you along the way because, let’s face it, preschoolers think she is cool! My daughter has the lunchbox and the plastic cups and the coloring books and the movies, of course. So, if your niños are anything like mine, they’ll be happy to know there’s a new Dora the Explorer prime timeRead More ...

Los Lobos Goes Disney

I‘m sure it’s happened to you. You’re happily minding your own business and out of nowhere you start belting out the theme song from the latest movie/TV show your kids are currently addicted to. Well, you’ll be happy to know that if it happens to be a Disney movie, you can now sing to the the tune of Los Lobos! In their new album, Los Lobos Goes Disney, the three-time Grammy award winners, cover a bunch of Disney classics withRead More ...

Singing the Sombrero Song Over and Over Again

Music is a vital element of our day to day life. I´m always making up silly songs that I would never dare to sing in public, and now my girl is joining me. Her´s are much better, for sure! Fati, a native Argentinian, and Charles are a husband and wife team and parents to two bilingual kids who decided to give life to those silly songs we parents like to make up with our kids and record them on toRead More ...

Have Fun Learning Spanish

Iwas pleasantly surprised by award-winning Whistlefritz‘ Spanish for Beginners DVD + CD series because I expected my 3-year-old daughter, whose first language is Spanish, to be a bit bored with it. I was wrong. Vanessa actually loved Adentro y Afuera‘s DVD’s main character, Fritzi, a cute little mouse used throughout the program to teach children Spanish vocabulary. She also loved the songs and actually got up and danced to “El Baile de las Manos.” The rhythm was contagious, I mustRead More ...

Little Pim has fun with languages

I just had another of those reality check moments that happen way too often once you become a mom.  I honestly thought my daughter would be bored by watching the Little Pim Spanish Eating and Drinking DVD we were sent because, well, she already understands Spanish since it´s the only language she hears at home.  If you visit our sister site, SpanglishBaby, you already know we´re raising her bilingually with what´s known as the minority language at home method. IRead More ...

Real música for little and big ears

This is definitely not your traditional Spanish music for kids.  Not at all.  These are some tunes that will get la familia entera dancing with ritmo y sabor.  This is a CD you’ll be asking your daughter to play más y más. Dan Zanes and Friends’ ¡Nueva York! is the first all-Spanish album the family musician has created and also his personal favorite.  With eleven of his CDs released to date, that’s a huge statement for Latino music. The fiestaRead More ...
