Head SHoulders coverWritten and Illustrated By Annie Kubler

Who hasn’t sung the rhyme or played the game of “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”?  This adorable book shares that popular kids rhyme and game in both English and Spanish.

Although a few parents I knew were bothered that the author substituted the words “legs” for “knee” and “foot” and toes”, the Spanish lyrics work within the song perfectly and are super-singable for kids of any age.

A wonderful little board book that not only teaches new words but encourages kids to get active with language and play!

Quiero A mi mama coverWritten By Laurel Porter Gaylord
Illustrated By Ashley Wolff

A beautiful little “first book” for young children, especially those learning in both English and Spanish.  Colorful illustrations of animal families are used to share the concepts of loving and caring that children will relate directly to their own lives.

I especially appreciated how this book focuses on the simple interactions that are so meaningful to both parent and child: listening while a child talks, tucking them into bed, singing a song for them, etc.  Whether you’re adding this book for home or the early education classroom, you’ll get get hours of enjoyment from this wonderful board book for bilingual babies and toddlers!
