Bilingual is Better

Bilingual family fun with an HP TouchSmart {GIVEAWAY–OH, YES!}

One week before my daughter and I left on our trip to El Salvador, my husband and I realized that if I was taking the laptop with me, we’d have no way to talk via Skype video since his computer doesn’t have a camera.  We were bummed because video chatting has become the way Camila connects with her family from a distance and she had to connect with her papá, or “principe,” while away. In a stroke of amazing luck,Read More ...

Video of the Week: Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue

Today is the day my daughter had been waiting for. Today Tinker Bell– her favorite Disney character–is getting into a whole new adventure and it’s coming to you in Blu-ray, DVD and as a movie download.  Disney’s Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue is the third movie release as part of the Disney Fairies franchise.  It is one of the more exciting ones because the world of fairies and humans meet for the first time. Think of this storyRead More ...

Make A Fan Out of You {Giveaway}

It would be an understatement to say my husband is a soccer/futból aficionado. The word is apasionado.  He grew up in Mexico City, where futbol and telenovelas are an oasis of escapism.  His grandfather led two of the most popular and beloved clubs, which also happen to be rivals from the same city:  El America y los Pumas. Fútbol and Pumas are a part of his heritage and one he embraced early on and trained to become a great, yetRead More ...

Lorito Books: Hear a Book, Read a Book {Giveaway}

Who doesn’t like been read to? My daughter, Vanessa, absolutely loves it when I—or anyone else in our family—sits down to read to her a book of her choice from her growing library. While I wished I had all the time in the world to do just that as often as she’d like to, life pulls me in way too many directions. That’s why I was absolutely thrilled when I found Lorito Books. The premise is simple: you choose aRead More ...

Adventures at School Bilingual DVD {Giveaway}

Just in time for back-to-school, Scholastic has come out with the latest set of DVDs in its Storybook Treasures collection. Adventures at School includes a total of 14 stories, three of which are narrated in Spanish. Like the Max and Ruby stories, these are short and varied in illustration and topic, with some catchy tunes. Aimed at 3-to-9-year-olds, they feature a range of animals and kids that make for funny characters and relatable storylines. All the stories feature accurate, read-alongRead More ...

“We Did It” Dora – The New 10th Anniversary Bilingual Doll {Giveaway}

As we mentioned last week, this month marks the 10th anniversary of the creation of Dora the Explorer character—the energetic bilingual Latina girl loved by all children and their parents, but especially by those of us raising bilingual children. In honor of this milestone, Fisher Price just debuted a singing and dancing “We Did It” Dora doll that will put your niños a bailar—or at least that’s what happened at my house when she came out of the box! TheRead More ...

Video of the Week: Stand By Me by Prince Royce

I had never thought of including a music video as part of our Video of the Week, but our reader and friend, Melissa Basadre,  recommended this one by the very popular bachata artist Prince Royce.  In her words: “I’m sure you’ve heard this version of Stand By Me but I wanted to share it with you anyway, as I think it’s a perfect example of bilingualism! ¡Me encanta y tiene mucho ritmo!“ We agree with Melissa.  It’s a beautiful songRead More ...

Sign Language with Classic Children’s Stories {Giveaway}

My baby is finally starting to use his sign language with me!  It is so exciting to have him let me know his wants and needs through signs.  I had used sign language with my first son, and it was a wonderful way to communicate before he could speak.  We stuck to the basics—milk, more, eat, all done, etc.  Just knowing these simple signs went a long way in helping us with communication difficulties.  In our family, where I speakRead More ...
