ReadMe: The Case of the Pen Gone Missing

This giveaway is now closed. The winner will be chosen soon. Thanks to all who entered! If you’re a regular reader of SpanglishBaby, you know that I’m a book lover and that there’s nothing that makes me happier than seeing my daughter follow in my footsteps. Books have always been an escape for me and even when I’ve been at my busiest – like when Vanessa was born and I didn’t even have time to shower – they have beenRead More ...

Professor Pocket::Sing Spanish, Speak Spanish

That's why the language-introduction approach used in the Professor Pocket CD's was completely relevant to us. Professor Pocket is a family-owned company that's created two bilingual (Spanish/English) CDs and supplemental materials to help children develop a lifelong passion for learning languages. At first, I thought Camila was still too young to completely understand and follow the storyline in "Our Silly Farm Adventure" since it's recommended for children ages 2 and up. That was not the case at all. Maybe she still doesn't grasp the context of what she is listening to, but she loves the silly animal sounds, the catchy songs and the identifiable kids' voices. I've also caught her adorably repeating the key words and anticipating the songs many times. ...

ChíChí&Flaco: Celebrating Latino Culture

This giveaway is now closed. The winner will be announced soon. You’ve probably been loving us (say you have!) this whole week because we were able to put together some awesome giveaways for your kiddos to enjoy, but you might be thinking “Why do my kids always get to have all the fun?” No worries, we’ll always take care of well-deserving Mamis and Papis.

Spanish Language Usborne Books

This giveaway is now closed. The winner is Debbie R. Even before Vanessa was born, I was hooked on Usborne books. I think it was my mom who brought me our first copies from México and I immediately took to them. The books are colorful and beautifully illustrated. And, even though they are not originally written in Spanish, the translations are well done. Another reason I like them is because they’re super sturdy and many of them are the perfectRead More ...

Global Wonders::Mexico

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner-Jessica!! I have to admit I’ve been using my daughter as a guinea pig for the past weeks. Hey, she’s not complaining! She’s been entertained with some cool videos, books and CDs, all while learning new Spanish words and bits about her native roots. Currently on permanent rotation in our DVD player is the Global Wonders: Mexico DVD.  Have you seen or heard of them? You should. They are a new brandRead More ...

Mark and Jennifer Manriquez use their knowledge and experience both as educators and as bilingual parents to create these videos with music, chants, movement and basic activities that make learning Spanish fun. ...

Handstand Kids Mexican Cookbook

Roxana first found this cookbook when she wrote about new bilingual toys for 2009. We were instantly fascinated by the genius idea of creating a set of multicultural cookbooks with the aim of teaching children about different countries' customs and languages via food. That just seemed so correctly in tune with our mission to raise bilingual and bicultural children through fun and meaningful activities. We've written several posts under the category of The Culture of Food because we truly believe that our traditional foods are one of the easiest and tastiest ways to connect our children with our roots, as well as an excellent way to open them to other cultures. I set out on a mission to get my hands on a copy of the Handstand Kids Mexican Cookbook to use for my own family and to review for you. Lucky me, the Handstand ladies found us first! ...

El Día de los Niños/El Día de los Libros + Giveaway

Congratulations to the winner: Donna Hunt! Thanks for all who entered. Growing up, I definitely remember celebrating El Día del Niño. I don’t particularly remember the date of this celebration, but that’s probably because it takes place on a different date in each of the Latin American countries I lived in as a child – Perú, México and Argentina. I do remember, however; that it was “our” day and everything revolved around us, just like when everything revolves around mamiRead More ...
