According to a study by researchers from three Boston-based universities, the ability to learn a new language is strongest before the age of 18, and fluency is best acquired when learning begins before the age of 10.
Given that Spanish is spoken by over 559 million people globally, learning the language early in life just makes sense!
So if you've given your kid or the kids in your life any great bilingual Spanish/English books, I want to know all about 'em!
Maybe they fell in love with learning about the legendary Selena Quintanilla through The Life of Selena/La Vida de Selena by Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein.
Or maybe they enjoyed learning about the journey that monarch butterflies take each year from Canada to Mexico through Ben Gundersheimer's Señorita Mariposa.
Perhaps they couldn't stop talking about paletas after reading ¿Qué Puedes Hacer Con Una Paleta?/What Can You Do with a Paleta? by Carmen Tafolla.
