As part of the "Growing Up Bilingual" workshop at the Reforma National Conference IV, I was introduced to the "Para los Niños" program. This is too great a resource to keep to myself! The program was developed by the Children's Museum of Houston. Tiffany Fontenot of CMH and Freda Mosquera, who has implemented the program at Broward County Library in Florida, gave us an in depth demonstration. The great thing about this program is that all of the materials are available to download and use in English and Spanish. Also, all of the materials needed for the learning activities are very cheap, making the activities easy for families to replicate at home.
So go check this program out! Do you know of other great ready-to-use resources for bilingual storytimes? Share them with us here!
