Baby Abuelita: Preserving Our Heritage

As soon as I heard Abuelita Rosa sing, I was transported back to Miami. I felt like I was in a Cuban bakery, sipping a delicious cafecito cubano while munching a pastelito de guava. I know that probably sounds strange, but after spending the majority of my life in Miami, it’s impossible not to recognize the accent I immediately associate with the Caribbean – particularly Cuba. Needless to say, I felt like I was back in the place I calledRead More ...

We received their multiple award-winning En Mi Casa CD, a singable book, stickers, and lyric and vocabulary cards all to accompany theRead More ...

We {heart} Pocoyó {Giveaway}

We really do.  The proof is that, over a year ago, we chose a Pocoyó video in Spanish, El Baile de Pocoyó, as our very first Video of the Week.  I can still remember the dancing parties my girl, husband and I would have in the living room when Pocoyó came on (We record it from Discovery Familia.

ReadMe: Poems to Dream Together

I don’t like having to fess up, but I’ve never been a very big fan of poetry. I don’t want to sound ignorant. I’m a writer. I know about the power and beauty of words. I just think that it has to do with the fact that I was never really exposed to it. I want the opposite to be the case for my niños, so I’ve been searching for the kind of children’s poetry that would engage them. NowRead More ...

Spanglish Wrangler {Giveaway}

This CD just puts me in a good mood.  It makes me want to sing-a-long, if only my daughter would let me, and to relax with a tall bubbly drink.  Oh, yes,  it’s also totally entertaining for your bilingual or Spanish-learning child as well.  Thomas, AKA the Spanglish Wrangler, knows his music.  The birth of his two children, coupled with his love of Spanish, led him on a journey to compose 12 enchanting songs where Spanish and English effortlessly flowRead More ...
