Bilingual is Better

Hot Peas ‘N Butter’s multicultural jamm

I´ve always considered myself a bit of a music snob because I am married to a Latin Musician/Song writer. With the birth of our Son, it was inevitable that music would be an important influence in his life. I, as a new mother, would prefer that he would have aspirations of becoming a lawyer, doctor or even an Indian Chief for that matter.  The reality is that there are instruments scattered from one end of our apartment to another andRead More ...

Time to say ‘Gracias’

As I mentioned over at SpanglishBaby today, now that my three-year-old daughter is able to kind of understand the meaning of Thanksgiving, we’ve been talking about it a lot. Since she is a big book-lover, I was very thankful when we received Pat Mora’s latest book, “Gracias/Thanks” last week because it instantly became a great way to explain what this beautiful holiday is all about. As you probably know by now, we’re are big fans of Mora and this bilingualRead More ...

Santa Buddies are coming to town

Puppies, Santa Claus and Christmas, what more do I need to say?  Santa Buddies: The Legend of Santa Paws, Disney´s newest Blu-ray and DVD title that releases today, perfectly combines these magical elements to bring the holiday season to your home-paws and all. The Buddies-Budderball, B-Dawg, RoseBud, Buddha and MudBud-are a group of adorable talking puppies that have become world-wide famous thanks to the three previous movies they have starred in.  Santa Buddies is the fourth Buddies film and theRead More ...

Endless topics of conversation

Recently, I wrote about ways to enrich your bilingual child’s vocabulary over at our sister site, SpanglishBaby, and one of the tips was to try to make everything into a topic of conversation. Coincidentally, the same day, I got the product pictured above which is a table game about exactly that: questions – from the thought-provoking to the trivial – to get a conversation going. I’ve always been a fan of board games. I used to spend endless hours playingRead More ...

Doing the Spanish Bop

I was one of those mother´s-to-be that swore I wouldn´t let my kid control my music selection. That my iPod and my playlist would be that one-sacred-thing I was not willing to give up. Either she liked MY music or ni modo.  Ay, one more parenting joke on me. Luckily, my girl has great taste.  We do most of our music listening in the car and she has some very cool CDs (past Finds, of course!) to choose from.  But,Read More ...

ReadMe: The Dog Who Loved Tortillas

This giveaway is now closed! Thanks for participating and CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER #6 Chrysa!! My three-year-old daughter, Vanessa, loves our black Lab, Max, even when he slobbers all over her just to say hello. But, she hasn’t been alive long enough to know/understand certain things about him – like the fact that, left to his own devices, he pretty much can chew away anything in sight. I’m talking from shoes to his plastic water bowl. Unfortunately, this has meantRead More ...

Now I Know My ABC’s

It’s all about the ABC’s for my daughter these days and nothing could be more luring than a set of colorful and sturdy cards with both the English and Spanish alphabet all packed into a nifty red box that begs to be opened. Another very cool product from Bilingual Readers. The Easy Alphabet!/¡Abecedario Fácil! is a great way for children to learn both alphabets and to enrich their vocabulary in both languages. There are 27 cards in the box andRead More ...

Go UP to reach your dreams

We’ve been blown away by the beauty and the captivating characters of UP,  Disney*Pixar’s newest movie to hit the home-entertainment stands in full force today, November 10th.  When it came out in theaters, amongst critical buzz and massive audience approval, and took its righteous first place at the box office on its opening weekend, I was acting nonchalant as if I really didn’t care that I didn’t yet have an excuse to take my then toddler girl to the movies. Read More ...
