ReadMe: When Times are Tough/En tiempos difíciles

Posted by: | 11 Comments

Most of us have been affected one way or another by the economic woes this country has been through in the last couple of  years. And, although children might be too young to understand all the implications and repercussions of a bad economy, they are not blind to the changes these bring about in their lives. Yet, at least for me, money is one of the toughest subjects to talk about with children. And,  if you have a preschooler, you probably know all too well how theyRead More ...

I had been waiting for someone to finally come up with exactly these type of bilingual and bicultural greeting cards and Viva Greetings hit the mark.  When Carla, owner and designer, contacted me so I could find out about her online shop I clicked over not expecting much.  Then, first thing I saw when her page loaded up was a simple, yet beautifully designed, red gallo (rooster) saying ¡Hola¡ to me. Trapped, I started furtively clicking through the site toRead More ...

Iconic British illustrator, Quentin Blake, just published a new Spanish/English bilingual book that is adorable for its simplicity: Ten Frogs/Diez Ranas.

I recommend it for parents with babies who can sit in front of the book and just be mesmerized by the animal illustrations; for bilingual toddlers who are learning toRead More ...

If there’s one thing we Latinos know how to do, it’s to party!  I don’t say that lightly. I take my salsa dancing very seriously. Problem is, I haven’t been getting much of it lately, and by “lately” I mean count in  years, not days or months.  This mamá doesn´t get to fiestar as much as she used to, or would like to. But, who´s to say I can´t dance whenever  I feel like it?  That´s just what I´ve beenRead More ...

It´s all about style these days with my bilingual princesa.  She´s almost three and at the stage where she has to choose her own clothes and will go loquita if I try to dress her in pants. She´s not having any of that. The self-declared princesa will only wear dresses and flowy skirts. Oh, sí. Last week we received a package with an adorably cute t-shirt from Hola Baby online store.  They sent her a stylish white tee with twoRead More ...
