Bilingual is Better

SB Finds

Two Little Libros: Sea Animals and Jungle Animals + Giveaway

Talk about Spanglish…I love the title of this collection from Bilingual Readers. One of my favorite things from this bilingual publishing house, which was born only last year in Spain, is the way they package their products. Their books have been a hit at our home, in part, because of the cool way they are presented. The Two Little Libros collection is no different. The two, 16-page board books come in a sturdy slipcase which already makes them different and interesting forRead More ...

Kids Love Spanish {Giveaway}

As a tutor and someone who learned Spanish en la escuela, I have encountered many methods of presenting new vocabulary. The search for effective Spanish materials for young children can be a grueling one. Julie and Krisse, sisters and creators of the Kids Love Spanish DVD series, have come to our rescue with this set of entertaining lessons organized by theme and intended for children ages 1-8. With topics like family, food, and animals, the lessons present relevant vocabulary, regardlessRead More ...

A Kid’s Guide to Latino History

We are so excited to bring back SpanglishBabyFinds, and even more so that it’s all merged into one rocking site! We definitely missed telling you about our Finds and hosting fun giveaways.

ReadMe: The Best Mariachi in the World

Congratulations to the winner #16 – Sand! Since we launched ReadMe–our monthly literary series–last summer, I have been exposed to bilingual books and publishing houses that I didn’t even know existed. The good news is that there is a lot of really great stuff out there, which you probably already knew if you’ve been reading these entries since we began. One of the things I like the most is that many of these books not only showcase our Latino cultureRead More ...

ReadMe: Mimí’s Parranda

Although my husband doesn’t get to read to our daughter as much as they’d both like to, a few nights ago he was home before her bedtime and she begged him to read her the new book we had just received to review for this month’s ReadMe: Mimí’s Parranda. It was a great pairing because the book is about a parranda – an awesome, fun and musical tradition that takes place during Christmas in Puerto Rico, my husband’s homeland. SoRead More ...

Kid's music never tasted so good

We mostly review CDs of children’s music with Spanish or bilingual lyrics, but Putumayo Kids Presents deserves a rank of its own.  The children’s and educational division of the well-known Putumayo Music CDs dedicate themselves to the mission of introducing cultures to kids through the art of music. And they do it very well. As a parent raising a bilingual and bicultural child, I appreciate companies that create materials that reach out to to this generation of global citizens. IRead More ...

Dora celebrates la Noche Buena

Our amiga Dora has gotten herself and her friends into yet another adventure.  This time she volunteers to take Swiper off Santa’s naughty list by showing him the real spirit of la Navidad is giving, not taking away, or “swiping”, in his case.  To accomplish this, they take him to revisit the Swiper of Christmas past, present and future.  A classic holiday tale, told Dora-style. The first clip I saw of this Nickelodeon primetime special, “Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure”, wasRead More ...
