Cha, Cha, Cha: Canciones Infantiles {Giveaway}

Video of the Week: A glimpse into a bilingual playdate

I am lucky–very lucky–to have many friends who are raising bilingual children around me.  Our weekly playdates with Dariela´s son, Adrián, have become a source of intense joy for Camila.  I can´t help but say how cute they are together!

ReadMe: When Times are Tough/En tiempos difíciles

Yet, at least for me, money is one of the toughest subjects to talk about with children. And,  if you have a preschooler, you probably know all too well how theyRead More ...

Bilingual Greeting Cards That Speak Our Language

I had been waiting for someone to finally come up with exactly these type of bilingual and bicultural greeting cards and Viva Greetings hit the mark.  When Carla, owner and designer, contacted me so I could find out about her online shop I clicked over not expecting much.  Then, first thing I saw when her page loaded up was a simple, yet beautifully designed, red gallo (rooster) saying ¡Hola¡ to me. Trapped, I started furtively clicking through the site toRead More ...

Spanish Buzz: Toy Story 3 Bilingual Action Figure {Giveaway}

My almost 4-year-old daughter, Vanessa, is ahead of her time. Last year, she discovered her older brother’s 2-disc DVD collector’s edition of Toy Story 1 and 2 and immediately became addicted to them. These movies have been favorites at my house ever since I can remember because they became popular during the time my stepson was a small boy. First, Vanessa fell in love with Woody and soon thereafter, with Buzz. So much so that she asked for the themeRead More ...
