La abeja amarilla acumula miel.
Here at Piper loves the library we adore dual language books.
We've talked about them before, (click here). Our library community speaks 64 languages. (...as my younger sister says when something astounds her "Get Out"!) It is astounding, fascinating and amazing on a busy library day to hear the buzz of patrons communicating in many languages. Our summer afternoon craft programs are mini United Nations' session! Always the perfect opportunity for Practice English for the parents while we craft and play and do our reading.
Presenting a story time with Color as the theme, is guaranteed to promote languages even if it is not the intention. You know how it goes...You look out to the beautiful faces of children and happy mamas and you ask, what color is the bee? An eager hand raises and the child proudly answers amarilla! Si! Yes!
Today I have Eric Carle's gorgeous dual language Color Colores book to reassure myself and the community that Spring is coming to our town! I am reading Bob and Otto by Robert O. Bruel as well because caterpillars and butterflies are a fun way to show-off colors. And just in case you are thinking about "Dig Into Reading" - Bob and Otto will take you there this summer.
Johnette Downing has a beautiful dual language song -Mariposa - on her Boogie Woogie Bugs CD
Piper is very excited about her new, colorful, sunglasses!
