I envision a library of take-home adapted books for our Spanish-speaking kids. How cool would it be for the parents, when the primary home language is Spanish! From what I've researched, kids who have a strong literacy and language base in their first language do much better in the second language which often is English. This is true for Spanish, ASL, Chinese, or myriad other languages that I've encountered at my school.
Apparently, I have a new friend who envisions the same library of Spanish literacy materials--Lindsay Leacox, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, who has taken the time to translate several books posted on my blog into Spanish.
I'll highlight the first one here--Counting Horses which is a beautiful book, now translated, thanks to Dr. Leacox. I hope I can actually meet her someday! I was thrilled that she took the time to translate, and then shared with me. More books to follow!
