Raising Bilingual Readers

Reading has many benefits for children, and for bilingual children, reading in the language you’re trying to teach them is a fun, effortless way to help develop and maintain that language. For us at Entre Dos, reading has been an invaluable tool in developing our daughters’ Spanish. In this week’s episode, we speak to Vanessa Nielsen Molina of Sol Book Box, a subscription service that sends one Spanish-language or bilingual children’s book to your home every month.

Vanessa tells us how to choose quality books for children and how to encourage them to become readers. She also shares a few of her favorite children’s books in Spanish.
