Chiquita and I we celebrated Dia de la Planeta (I know some people call it Dia de la Tierra, but that makes me think Dirt Day). I was super excited to start off with a preview of Kids Yoga Stories new book "Luke's Beach Day Adventure" (check back in a month or so for a giveaway!). I was lucky to get an advanced copy to review! It will be coming out this summer in both English and Spanish.
It's an interactive book about kids on the beach in Australia. The environmental angle is a natural part of the book, kids just picking up trash when they see it and enjoying nature. Throughout the book yoga poses are suggested that go along with the story and pictures. All of them were easy to understand and Chiquita attempted all of them.
Then Chiquita and I got ready for some seed planting. I cut some toilet paper rolls in half and made four slits in the bottom to fold a bottom. Then we filled them with dirt! We'll be planting seeds during next week's Spanish for Preschooler, so now we're ready!
From last week we are featuring "Bilingual Books" from The Good Long Road. As part of their weekly challenge to find great library books this blogger focused on bringing more Spanish into their home! If your local library doesn't have multi-lingual options I encourage you to:
- Ask them to get books in your language - they won't buy them until people request them.
- Look to neighboring libraries. I drive 45 minutes to another library that has awesome resources that my local library doesn't, well worth the drive and annual fee.
- Join a book swap with others who speak your language! You can benefit from each other's home libraries!
