In the past I have stressed about the limited diversity in children’s book especially in my neck of the woods. Finding multicultural or Spanish language books is nearly impossible. I’ve had to place “special order request” at our town’s bookstore, I’ve ordered on-line, and family members often gift little one with Spanish and/or bilingual books. I’ve also purchased books when I visit Puerto Rico.
So, when I found a variety of children’s book in Spanish (at a discount store) I couldn’t help but feel that I had hit the jackpot, and to find books with audio CD’s in them was priceless!!!
Using audio books in the child’s target language is a great way to use technology to raise a bilingual child. Check out the video I posted below.
