Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band – A Potluck! {Giveaway!}

As you know, we really try to stick to listening to music in Spanish as much as possible, but have recently fallen head over heels with  Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band’s A Potluck CD. We played it once in our car – our favorite place to jam and sing-out-loud – and  we were instantly hooked to the fun, vibrant and eclectic sounds coming out of the speakers. You know when a song is so good and catchy that youRead More ...

Graco True Focus Digital Video Monitor {Giveaway}

I love gazing at my two babies. I can sit idle for a long time watching Alina, my two year old, dance and sing or put a puzzle together. Her 8 week old brother’s sight is starting to focus, and I gawk as he processes the world for the first time. Since they are young, I am never further than my eye sight. Whether a new parent or a seasoned pro, every mom knows how rewarding it is to watchRead More ...

Scholastic Parent Circle: Mi primera enciclopedia del mundo {Giveaway}

Vanessa is such a curious child and she’s definitely much more interested in all topics related to science than I was at her age — or ever, really. I’m not sure where the fascination comes from, but I’m making sure to nature it (although I know very little about the subject) because I would never want to influence her with my own likes and dislikes. Luckily, her father LOVES science too, so they get to spend a lot of timeRead More ...

Books & Libros: The Many Faces of Max {Giveaway}

I recently found out about a bilingual publishing company I’d never heard about when I was sent their new children’s books for 2012 and I’m happy to report that I really like what Lectura Books is doing. Founded back in 2001, Lectura Books’ main goal is parent involvement when it comes to reading. To that end, its most well-known program,The Latino Family Literacy Project, aims to establish a daily reading routine through age-appropriate books that help children (and their parents)Read More ...

Photo Banner for Conversation in Spanish {Printable Activity}

As my kids got older, I worried about them getting enough exposure to Spanish to keep expanding their vocabulary. The language we used at home was often routine and as they spent more time with friends they used Spanish in fewer settings. I was concerned that when we did speak Spanish in new situations there was not enough repetition for them to be really learning. I began looking for simple ways to have conversations about a wider variety of topicsRead More ...
