For those of you interested, I have published an article over at Modern Familia on Using Multicultural Children’s Literature to Supplement Your Child’s Education. I'll be following it up in the next few weeks with a list of multicultural children's books that I recommend for bilingual families. If you haven't already checked out Modern Familia, it is a site created by mi amiga, Angélica Pérez-Litwin, who is a clinical psychologist. The blog is a wealth of information for multicultural families, to help them be their best.
Also, our sister site, The Latin Baby Book Club, is currently giving away a signed copy of Monica Brown's Pelé King of Soccer. If you'd like to see the trailer that Monica has made for it, or learn more about the giveaway, click here.
All of the homeschooling methods place a heavy emphasis on reading books that bring history to life and make it easy for the child to relate to and understand. Biographies are especially valuable in this regard. For those of you following the Charlotte Mason method, this book would be considered a "Living Book".
