Bilingual Kids App: To the Farm!

Now that my son has started English-only school, I am even more concerned with giving him supplementary learning activities in Spanish.

My son Santiago turned three years old last Friday, but we celebrated the weekend before that with a double birthday party for him and his sister Vanessa who turned six in late July.

Although the tricky part was decorating for two parties with completely different themes (Santiago wanted trucks/tractors and Vanessa wanted unicorns), IRead More ...
