Ever since our daughters were born, we noticed there was the lack of opportunities for them to experience cultural, literary and social activities in Spanish where we live.
With that in mind and with a little nudge from a listener and friend, we’ve decided to try our hand at hosting Spanish Playtime events in Houston. We hope this will become a series of events in our home cities of Houston and Miami – because we believe that children should have the opportunity be exposed to their minority language outside the home.
