Multicultural Book List from Reading is Fundamental

Though we do our best to offer you easy access to Spanish and bilingual books, we all have to admit it’s still far more of a challenge to find good Latino-themed children’s literature than it is to find great Anglo-centric books. That’s why we love it when we see someone else participating in the search and producing great resources for Latinos and other ethnic groups.

Heritage Language Books: A Bilingual Gem {Giveaway}

A gem, that’s how I describe the three books I got last week from Heritage Language – a husband and wife team who noticed the huge need for bilingual books to help both Spanish and English language learners and decided to create their own books with audio. First of all, the books are well-written both in English and in Spanish. The best part? The translations are not literal, which means that the Heritage Language folks totally get it. Translating wordRead More ...
