One day in April is "The Day of the Child." I'm not exactly sure which day so I celebrate the whole of April as "The Month of the Child." Here's a good book for the child in all of us.
GET READY FOR GABI
A Crazy Mixed Up Spanglish Day
by Marisa Montes
Third grader Gabi speaks Spanish at home and English at school and sometimes "Spanglish" everywhere. Don't we all? There are three more books in this adorable Spanglish Series. Read and enjoy them all.
GET READY FOR GABI: Who's That Girl
GET READY FOR GABI: No More Spanish
GET READY FOR GABI: Please Don't Go.
