Growing up as a Hispanic kid in Miami, Florida, I loved books. My favorite place in the world was the library. I would immerse myself in books and stories, yet these books and stories never reflected the world I lived in (me below in elementary school). Fast forward to today, where I am raising a multicultural child, it is important to me that she grows up understanding about differences in cultures, skin colors, and socioeconomic statuses reflective of the multicultural world she lives in today. Books can help. See some of our top favorites and other highly rated books that celebrate being different.
Thanksgiving is around the corner and as a mom, you may be already stressing out about the holiday, because doesn’t that also mean Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas?!! Who has time to teach kids Spanish and do activities with their kids? I know, life is hectic, but I have 7 Spanish words that will teach your child about the essence of Thanksgiving with simple activities that will help them understand each meaning. Not a lot of time but a big return.
