  1. I could definitely use these books when teaching my students about multicultural children’s books. I teach children’s literature to future elementary school teachers.

  2. I use books in my classroom and provide free voluntary reading time for my students. My classes are a combination of students in the regular classroom and students at other sites through Interactive Distance Learning. My classes have grown so much that it is difficult to send many books to all sites. I would love to win and be able to add to my Spanish library!

  4. Love the information this blog offers in new reading for children! Getting Bilingual books into our classrooms in Oklahoma is so important as our community has so many Spanish speaking children in our schools and would love to have our English speaking children start to learn and loving Spanish at a much younger age! The last sentence of your blog says it all for me, “these books offer great themes such as oral histories, kindness, families, faith, loyalty, and friendship, among many others”. Even if I don’t win these books I will be getting them for my nephew’s classroom and I’ll keep trying until I do!!

    Thanks! Kelly

  5. What a beautiful give away! I am an elementary Spanish teacher at two schools. While I love teaching Spanish, I ADORE sharing aspects of culture with the students I teach. Beautiful books like these do just that! Keep up the amazing work !
