#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.

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 ...

Painting with Kids: Slugs and Snails

painting with snails

Let me start off by assuring you that no snails or slugs were harmed in this project.  We used non-toxic paint and just enough for them to slide through and crawl around. We love critters in our home, well mis nino’s love critters.

Slugs in Spanish are BabosasRead More ...

Book review: Faster! Faster! ¡Más rápido! ¡Más rápido! {Giveaway}

Two little words leave much to the imagination in this great book! My two year old excitedly watched as the little girl and her dad go faster and faster, transforming into different animals and traveling through different habitats. For Enzo and I, it was an interactive experience. We talked about the pictures  we saw: “¡Qué animal es?”  “Va más rápido!” “¡Qué color es?”  etc. It is a great way to practice vocabulary and to introduce new vocabulary! It also providesRead More ...
