Bringing Our Culture a Little Closer to Home

Posted by: | 14 Comments

My mom just got back from a month-long trip to Perú, our homeland, and as soon as she landed, I wanted to know when she’d be over. Not only did I miss her and wanted for her to see her nietos (especially since my baby boy, Santiago, has changed so much in the past few weeks), but also because I knew she was coming back with a suitcase full of awesome goodies from back home. As soon as my momRead More ...

The Little Pim Family Grows! {Giveaway}

Posted by: | 76 Comments

My two year old fell in love with Little Pim within ten minutes of watching the first video.  He now carries his plush Little Pim with him all the time and even sleeps with him at night.  The educational and entertaining Little Pim videos are a great way to introduce a child to a foreign language or to further reinforce a second language being taught at home.  The videos are fun and a great support for language learning. The seriesRead More ...

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 ...

Ask an Expert: I want my child to learn three languages at the same time

Posted by: | 3 Comments

Today on Ask an Expert we´re trying out something for the first time: We gave two bilingual experts the same question and asked them each to answer it from their specific area of expertise. The result is what we feel a broader piece of extremely useful advice. Last week Dr. Ellen Stubbe Kester, Ph.D. answered Leslie´s question through the lens of her expertise in bilingual speech therapy. Today, Lori Langer Ramirez answers the same question as a multicultural and diversityRead More ...

Little Pim has fun with languages

Posted by: | 29 Comments

I just had another of those reality check moments that happen way too often once you become a mom.  I honestly thought my daughter would be bored by watching the Little Pim Spanish Eating and Drinking DVD we were sent because, well, she already understands Spanish since it´s the only language she hears at home.  If you visit our sister site, SpanglishBaby, you already know we´re raising her bilingually with what´s known as the minority language at home method. IRead More ...
