Bilingual is Better

Birthdays are special occasions for people around the world, but for Latinos, each birthday is a passage into a new life stage. Whether you celebrate with a piñata, unique recordatorios, or a huge quinceañera bash, sharing your birthday with loved ones is a cultural necessity.

Introduce your little lectores to the excitement of a cumpleaños by sharing some of these fun and informative books with them, or reminisce about your own lifetime of birthdays with the title I recommend for parents.

Find these books and many more in La Tiendita.
