Bilingual is Better

SB Finds

Flashing with style

One of the biggest challenges of raising a preschooler is to get their focus and attention for at least five minutes.  Well, that´s the case in my house.  I mean, we´re finally getting to the stage where storytime doesn´t mean ripping and biting books!  That´s why I felt we passed a milestone yesterday when my girl and I peacefully sat down to name the colorful objects in Eeboo´s Spanish Flash Cards.  What I thought was going to turn into aRead More ...

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

An interesting fact about the third installment of the popular Ice Age saga Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (or Ice Age 3) is that since its premiere in theaters worldwide this summer, it has made three times more revenue internationally than it has in the U.S.  In some foreign countries it has been the biggest hit since the movie “Titanic” made impact.  Such is the case in many Latin American countries where the film has been released in SpanishRead More ...

Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom

I don’t know of any preschooler who is not totally into Dora the Explorer, do you? And, if you’re raising bilingual children, she’s the perfect character to support you along the way because, let’s face it, preschoolers think she is cool! My daughter has the lunchbox and the plastic cups and the coloring books and the movies, of course. So, if your niños are anything like mine, they’ll be happy to know there’s a new Dora the Explorer prime timeRead More ...

Los Lobos Goes Disney

I‘m sure it’s happened to you. You’re happily minding your own business and out of nowhere you start belting out the theme song from the latest movie/TV show your kids are currently addicted to. Well, you’ll be happy to know that if it happens to be a Disney movie, you can now sing to the the tune of Los Lobos! In their new album, Los Lobos Goes Disney, the three-time Grammy award winners, cover a bunch of Disney classics withRead More ...

Día de los Muertos Finds|Part 1 of 2

While many are busy getting ready for Halloween, we want to spice things up a bit for the bicultural families amongst us with a little Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) feast. Day of the Dead is celebrated on November 1st in Mexico and some Latin American countries.  It´s a day to remember the loved ones in our lives that have passed on.  We remember them with joy and happiness. Latinos know how to turn everything into aRead More ...

Let the animals come to life

Have you heard of something called Scanimation? It’s a pretty cool technique which makes the images of this book, ¡Al Galope!, seem as if they’re moving. Artist, inventor, filmmaker, Rufus Butler Seder, came up with this animation process described as “video without a screen.” Translated from the #1 New York Times bestseller children’s book, Gallop!, the Spanish version will have your kiddos thinking they’re watching a movie instead of reading a book. Not to mention, they’ll learn a bunch ofRead More ...

Big Art for Little Hands

That’s exactly the way the publishers describe this Frida Kahlo Coloring Book for children: Big art for little hands.  And this is one I really want to get my own hands on.  I can even imagine myself begging my two-year old to sit down and color with me the fascinating 32 pages on this book.  She would probably be over it after roughly squiggling undefined lines with a couple of colors, while I sit there patiently trying to recreate theRead More ...
