I hope our babies always remember sitting, cuddled and loved, on our laps while we read to them. I believe that the best gift you can give your kids is time— the kind where you’re fully present, completely engaged. Reading to them makes it easy. 💕
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. reminded us that “unity has never meant uniformity.” That’s why #weneeddiversebooks (especially children’s books!)— books that are both “windows” and “mirrors:” windows to teach our chiquitos about the life experiences of others, and mirrors that help affirm their own. Happy day remembering the man who taught us that peace can be achieved by understanding. ❤️ #mlkjr #mlkjrday
Feliz viernes! Thought I’d do an intro post in case you’re new around here 😊. Hola! Me llamo Vanessa. I’m from Chihuahua, México y me considero más mexicana que un nopal 🇲🇽. I believe in traveling with kids (start ‘em young!) and in the power of language to connect us to our fellow humans. Raising two bilingual Mexiecuatorianamericana bookworms 🇲🇽🇪🇨🇺🇸. I’m a vegetable enthusiast and I’ll never turn down a chocolate chip cookie 🍪. #hi
Sol Book Box began because I feel so passionately that reading creates confident, smart and emotionally healthy kids— and reading in Spanish does all of that PLUS exposes kids to new vocabulary and love for the language. Now this little company that we’ve built to help other parents celebrate their bilingual/bicultural chiquitos is celebrating its first birthday and I’m feeling a little emotional about it! I would love to rent un brinca brinca and have all of the phenomenal people in this community over for a huge first year piñata (wouldn’t that be lovely?). Instead we´re having the online version of a piñata: a biiiiiig sale! Buy a six month subscription at http://www.solbookbox.com and we’re giving you one month free! GRACIAS for being here, for knowing that #weneeddiversebooks and teaching your kids that we also need, and love, diverse people.
