Si! Bilingual is better!
We’d like to introduce you to an exciting new book on our shelves:
Bilingual is Better: Two Latina Moms on How the the Bilingual Parenting Revolution is Changing the Face of America is a book that responds to the question: “what if all children in America, regardless of their cultural background, would actually benefit from learning two languages?”
The authors, Roxana A. Soto and Ana L. Flores, are media professionals and the founders of the popular blog SpanglishBaby.com (voted a ‘must read Mom’s blog’ by Parenting Magazine).
Here they combine memoir with up-to-date research on the topic of bilingualism, debunking myths and offering tips and even a great list of resources at the end of the book.
Come in and see how this book can speak to you.
And, while you’re at it, discover some delightful bilingual children’s books we have at La Casa Azul Bookstore, such as:
What Can You Do with a Paleta? by Carmen Tafolla, illustrated Magaly Morales
Hairs/ Pelitos by Sandra Cisneros, illustrated by Terry Ybáñez
