It’s been quite a while since my last blog post. In fact, over the past few months, I haven’t even been able to be very active on our social media platforms.
What have we been up to? Quite a lot!
Interactive Picture Books
The main thing that has been occupying my time, since the beginning of this year, actually, is the production/conversion of our picture books, for IOS and Android. I’m happy to announce that 5 more books have just been launched, and they are available on Apple Books and Google Play!
- Me gusta como soy
- ¡Cucú, te quiero!
- Hora de despertarse y empezar
- I like myself
- Time to wake up and go!

Digitalized Teacher’s Guides
As many of you may know, we offer our Teacher’s Guides for teaching English and/or Spanish to very young children on printing format through our webpage. Since January, we’ve decided to convert these Teacher’s Guides to digital format with audio. We’ve been working on putting together first the Spanish curriculum for Babies.
This new format has all the songs from each unit incorporated as well as the dialogs and read alouds. In this way, we make the guides more teacher friendly and also easier to use by parents who may need help and guidance on what is shown to children each day. This is especially crucial for parents who have little or no Spanish background.
We hope to soon be launching our iPad version as well as that for Androids of Spanish for Babies 1.
We will continue to add more digital features to all the materials that go with the guides based on your feedback.
There are many enhancements proposed, but the 2 main features you will see are:
– Enrichment Activities Booklets in digital format with audio files
– Interactive activities for children online
