What wonderful material for teaching and learning Spanish.
Are there French versions?

Thank you for sharing these resources with those of us who are working hard to raise bilingual children. I'm a mother of three who's teaching my girls Spanish and I find your site very useful. I just started my own blog back in November chronicling my experiences as a bilingual mother trying to raise my daughters bilingual. Please do read my blog when you get a chance. Here's the link:

@rdmami - I read your blog. I'm very impressed with what you have done so far. I've added you to my blog roll. :)

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog. I enjoy reading your blog also and have added you to my blog roll. When I started this journey with my daughters I didn't realize how challenging and rewarding it would be. I love teaching my girls Spanish and encourage anyone out there who's reading this not to give up.
