ReadMe: Mimí’s Parranda

Posted by: | 14 Comments

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 ...

Bicultural Holiday Traditions

Posted by: | 2 Comments

Nothing like the holiday season to fill up your spirit with nostalgic memories full of aromas, tastes, colors and sounds.  Once we own up to them, those same memories are the ones that become traditions.  In our case, these memories turned traditions are a mix of the old and the new, un poco de aquí y un poco de allá.

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 ...

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 ...

This contest is now closed. We’ll announce the winner shortly! We’re doing something a little bit different for this month’s installment of ReadMe. Instead of showcasing a book’s author, we’d actually like to introduce you to a brand new bilingual publishing house which we support 100%. First because we truly believe in what the publishers are doing and second because their products are different and, simply put, cool and innovative! It’s called Bilingual Readers – we’ve linked to their blog’sRead More ...

ReadMe: Abuelos

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner: Melissa Davis! One of the parts I love the most about SpanglishBaby is all the discoveries I’ve made of things I would’ve never known existed otherwise–this has been particularly true in the area of books. As you probably know by now, back in July we launched our newest monthly series, which we call: ReadMe. We have teamed up with several Bilingual/Spanish children’s book publishers to bring you a review of aRead More ...

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered and for all the wonderful comments. CONGRATULATION TO OUR WINNER: KALEN! I can’t deny it. I was super excited when I got the package from Children’s Book Press (CPB) containing the book they had sent me to review for our second installment of our new monthly literacy series: ReadMe. I had already had the pleasure of enjoying several of their books from our local library and I couldn’t wait toRead More ...
