What's New at Booklandia?/ ¿Qué hay de nuevo en Booklandia? — Bilingual books
Collaborative Post with Nene Bilingüe0 "Being raised speaking both Spanish and English, I always felt there was a time and place for each. Rarely did I mix them, rather it was more of an either-or mentality. The rule was: En la casa se habla español and at school and everywhere else it's your choice! Now that I have my own children I want them to maintain their mother-tongue to be able to communicate with the world! I want them to use Spanish at home and out on the street, I want them to use English when they see fit, I want them to choose the right words in whatever language to share their feelings and thoughts. I want them to be BILINGÜE." -Verónica Villa
