#BilingualKids Video of the Week: Basho and Friends Alfabeto Song

A few weeks ago a reader asked us on our Facebook wall if we could recommend una canción del alfabeto that was fun, upbeat and didn’t include the ch, ll, or rr. One quick search lead me to Basho and Friends and their “Orale, el alfabeto” song. Both the animation and the song are very simple, yet engaging and not overwhelming for kids. Actually, their version of the alfabeto song is quite catchy. Check it out for yourselves… Basho andRead More ...

Disney “Planes” In Theaters Now!

Planes1

Disney’s “Planes” is now in theaters nationwide! I was fortunate to learn some behind the scenes information representing SpanglishBaby at the DisneyToon Studios, even interviewing  Teri Hatcher (voice of Dottie) and the film’s Director and Producer too. It was an awesome experience, especially since this Disney film is extremely special. Main character, Dusty, is but a simple crop duster from the farm town of Propwash Junction, USA. Together with the support of his best friend Chug and over-protective mechanic Dottie,Read More ...

Sukey’s Circle! Bilingual Mini Shows DVD {Giveaway}

  Sukey’s Circle! Vol. 3: Mini Shows, a bilingual DVD with 15 mini televised episodes featured on Baby First, is the perfect example of what a true circle time should be for young children.  Circle time for young children is one of the hardest jobs (at least for me it was) to do well because children are always growing at different stages.  From the moment a baby is born, his instinct is to learn, grow, and make connections with the world aroundRead More ...

Q&A with Teri Hatcher of Disney’s PLANES

New: Magic School Bus DVDs {Giveaway}

I can be a little bit strict when it comes to my boys and TV. Those of you who know me, have heard me talk about using little screen time as educational as possible. Just like my boys watching Spanish cartoons, when we received these DVDs in the mail, I said to them, “knock yourselves out!” They loved THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: REVVING UP (3 discs) and THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS: IN A PICKLE. Sixteen fun episodes about science, perfectRead More ...

New Video from Music with Sara: Mi Perrito Cachorrito

Sara is one of our favorite bilingual musicians for kids (and I’m not just saying that because she’s my daughter’s adored music teacher!) because her music is so simple, yet completely fun and catchy. We’ve debuted several of her music videos here and today we’re delighted to show you this one she has created just for SpanglishBaby amigos! The song is called “Mi Perrito Cachorrito” and it’s about the different sounds animals make in English and Spanish. Sara is invitingRead More ...

The Making of Planes: Interview with Director and Producer

The world of “Planes” is soaring above us and is scheduled to land on August 9th. During my Behind the Scenes visit at DisneyToon Studios, I got to catch up with two people that helped bring it all together: Director Klay Hall and Producer Traci Balthazor-Flynn. While I sincerely enjoyed screening the film and am excited to take my daughter to see it again, meeting these two film makers was definitely the highlight of #DisneyPlanesEvent. Little did I know that, asRead More ...
