Libros? Livres? 书?


Books in foreign languages can be a great way to introduce your child to different cultures.  Many libraries carry an assortment of picture books in Spanish, French and Mandarin.   Even if your child is well past the picture book stage, they may still enjoy reading and identifying new words.   Next time you’re at the local library, pick out one of their favorite books and have fun reading it in a new language.  I’m a big fan of the bi-lingual story-times too!


About the cultured kid

I've traveled, lived, worked and studied all over the world. Europe, North Africa, Central & South America, the Middle East and Asia. The more different the culture, the better! I'm determined to introduce my two boys to our multi-cultural world. Living in Washington, D.C. there are international festivals, parades and cultures right in our own backyard. I'll share with you our adventures around town and those that take us on international journeys. I'll also share ideas for introducing your family to foreign food, culture and community at home.
