Plaza Familia: A Free Magazine for Latino Families


Today, I am so pleased to announce the launch of a wonderful resource for Latino families. Plaza Familia is a bilingual magazine and education platform designed to provide information on a variety of subjects related to raising a healthy family. From tips to having a healthy pregnancy to dealing with toddler tantrums (without throwing one of your own!) to helping your tween dream big, Plaza Familia helps parents find solutions and support.


The magazine will be distributed in some Walmarts and other supermarkets throughout the country - for FREE! But if you can't find one near you, don't worry. The beautiful issues are available online. You can find the inaugural February issue and even read ahead in the March issue online at issue.com. I am honored to be a contributor to this great project, and you can find my first article on How to Maximize Your Children's Learning by Reading to Them inside the March issue.


In addition to the magazine, Plaza Familia is also creating multiple platforms online. First up, check out their new blog for some excellent articles in Spanish. You might especially enjoy the printables, like this letter "A" worksheet for preschoolers and kindergartners.

Don't be afraid to show some love and leave a comment or two!

Together, we are all working toward the education of our children and the future success of our country.

Con mucho cariño...

  6. Hi, Trisha.
    It depends on where you live. The magazines will be hitting the stands by this coming weekend in Miami, LA, NYC, Houston, Chicago, and Albany, NY. If you're in one of these areas, take a look on Saturday or so. If you're not, don't worry, they have plans to expand the market. In the meantime, you can read them online. :)
