Hispanic Mama

Bilingual Children’s Books

My heart has a special spot for children’s books. They were part of the magic of my childhood and beautiful times with my mother.

Mamá was an avid reader and on her lap, I traveled the world, met millions of people different than me and heard about dreams that I didn’t know they even existed.

I think it was through a book where I discovered my passion for language and heritage and where I learned how to cherish them.

Now that I am a mother myself, the worth of children books are even more precious than before. Books help me to connect with my kids  and provides opportunities to share my own stories with them. And as an immigrant, bilingual children’s books are gold. They help me to teach Spanish and my culture.

Benefits of Reading to Our Children

It is easy for me to be passionate and vocal about the benefits of reading to our children because:

  • Promotes language development.
  • Encourages critical thinking and imagination.
  • Enhances emotional intelligence.
  • Fosters empathy and respect for diversity.
