Bilingual is Better

Puerto Rico Map Puzzle {Giveaway}

I was so happy to find out that Ingenio, one of our long-time sponsors, has added two more learning puzzles to their already impressive list of bilingual toys. One of Mexico, which Ana Lilian wrote about last week, and the other one of Puerto Rico. While I don’t hail from either country, I’ve very strong ties to both of them. Not only did I live in Mexico as a child, but I’ve family and a lot of dear friends whoRead More ...

Foreign Language Friends Educational Website {Giveaway}

I think I’ve mentioned that my motto around here is, “Anything goes, as long as it’s in Spanish.”  This means we have quite a few DVDs in Spanish but not many in English.  It’s why we’ve put together quite a library of books in Spanish as well, so that we always have plenty to choose from.  However, when it comes to computer games in Spanish, I’ve found the selection lacking.  In fact, the only Spanish website my sons are everRead More ...

Video of the Week: La Bella y la Bestia

As much as my husband hates to admit it, his “princesa” is at a stage where fairies, princesses and pink are what make her happy.  It’s difficult for a man to understand that this is a natural right of passage for a girl. One that, when embraced with acceptance, can fuel her imagination. Her new obsession is Belle, or “Bella” as we know her by her Spanish name, from Disney’s classic “Beauty and the Beast.” My aunt had given herRead More ...

Books + Libros: From North to South {Giveaway}

Immigration is such a difficult subject to breach even among children. Imagine, then, having to talk about it with children. While I can’t lie and claim that my children—who are way too young to understand any of this anyway—are directly affected by our nation’s policy on immigration, as an immigrant myself, it would be a mistake not to start introducing some of the issues as they get a little bit older. Luckily, there’s an excellent bilingual writer who has madeRead More ...

9 Handpicked Apps for Bilingual Children

No doubt our children are growing up in a digital and connected world. Smartphones, computers and portable gaming devices are all around them since they are born.  Rather than shield them, I advocate for teaching them the best use of technology. I do carry an iPhone with me and I don´t know what I did before it. I have a great collection of apps that keep my daughter entertained while in the car during long drives or at moments whenRead More ...
