Mi Monstruo Burrufú by Alberto Corral {Giveaway}

BOOK DESCRIPTION/REVIEW I am always looking for high quality Spanish books. When I was presented with the opportunity to review Mi monstruo Burrufú, written by Alberto Corral and illustrated by Alessandra Sorrentino, I jumped with excitement (really!). As an adult, I can easily recall great Spanish Literature targeted to higher grades; however, when it comes to the lower grades I can name tons of picture books yet few NEW Spanish chapter books. Mi monstruo Burrufú is a wonderful story aboutRead More ...

GoComics Bilingual (English/Spanish) Comic Book App

I am always on the lookout for Spanish and bilingual apps that are appropriate and entertaining for older children and teens, since my stepdaughters are in middle school and quickly losing interest in Spanish (unless it’s required for socializing). GoComics is an excellent app that features a diverse range of comics in both English and Spanish for teens and adults. GoComics features the classics, such as Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes, and Doonesbury, but also has a wide array of newerRead More ...

Book Review: My Name is Cool {Giveaway}

BOOK DESCRIPTION/REVIEW Antonio Sacre is an American storyteller born in Boston to a Cuban father and an Irish-American mother and his fun, sometimes touching, stories reflect the diversity of his identity and experience. “My Name is Cool: 18 Stories From a Cuban-Irish-American Storyteller,” is Sacre’s most recent book filled with Spanglish-style writing. Marketed to “young readers” — it’s my opinion that this book not be handed over to children younger than 12 due to some mature themes in a fewRead More ...

Ingenio: Magic Numbers & Alphabet Flashcards {Giveaway}

  Do you have a child beginning to learn to read and write?  Need some help at homework time?  Learning to write is a huge milestone for children, and not all children learn at the same pace.  That is a fact.  I’ve seen children whiz through the process of reading and writing.
