Bilingual is Better

SB Finds

Descubriendo los Transportes With Music {Giveaway}

The first thing Camila said when I showed her the new CD that had arrived in the mail was:  “¡Mamá! ¡El mono de los colores!”  That was a very good sign. She had immediately recognized the Descubriendo Líneas DVD we had watched and reviewed over a month ago where Bubba–the “mono”–engages with “colores.”  I guess she liked it more than I gave her credit for! This music CD, Descubriendo los Transportes, is part of the Argentinean-created Descubriendo Líneas catalog ofRead More ...

Jose Luis Orozco Sings in Spanish for You

A couple of weeks ago I got the chance to sit down with one of the most prominent and active bilingual educators, singer/songwriter of our times, José Luis Orozco.  This was the second time I got to speak to him for SpanglishBaby (we featured him during Hispanic Heritage Month last year), but the first time we met in person. We share the same mission to connect our children to their heritage and culture through language.  José Luis does this throughRead More ...

Easy Translator {Giveaway}

Editor’s note: The following review was done by Sisi Martinez Purfield, a bilingual teacher mom of a bilingual preschooler. When I first saw the Easy Translator by Ingenio I was excited to see if my 3.5 year old son would like it.  My son is pretty bilingual although not nearly as fluent in Spanish as he is in English.  I gave it to him and thought he might be interested in doing a few of the “theme” vocabulary cards.  WhenRead More ...

Elmo’s A to Zoo Adventure Videogame

When I was a child I loved watching Sesame Street, and was quite excited when given the opportunity to review Elmo’s A to Zoo Adventure, the videogame. I loved it!  The graphics are great, and the games are fun and educational! The games are designedo be played by young children, but the difficulty level adapts to the child’s ability. The games become more challenging as the player’s skills develop. The audio and visual directions are easy for children to follow, andRead More ...

Happy Fiestas! Bilingual Greeting Cards {Giveaway}

I’ve always been pretty disappointed with the lack of options there is when it comes to greeting cards in Spanish. Unfortunately, so many companies don’t seem to understand that using an online translator just doesn’t cut it. Enter: Cultúrame – Feel the Culture! a bilingual greeting card company, the brainchild of Debra Del Toro-Phillips. Cultúrame – gotta love the name! – was born when Debra decided to combine her experience doing fundraising work and her creative self-expression into a businessRead More ...

Between Me and You: A Keepsake Journal in Spanish {Giveaway}

Editor’s note: When Sand Dune Books contacted us about doing a review of their products, both Ana and I felt neither of our daughters were old enough for us to fill out these keepsake journals and do a fair and truthful review. But, we absolutely loved the idea behind the journals, so we decided to give one to my sister, Gloria, to fill it out for her 19-year-old daughter (mi ahijada, Veronika) who goes to school in Florida. There areRead More ...

I was thrilled to learn that these characters are now featured in their ownRead More ...
