31 Days of Library Living {Day 20}: Learning The Language

She is muy bonita. The children adore her. Our library offers this free 30 minute children's class each Wednesday morning. After class we pick out a Beautifully Balanced Spanish Collection to reinforce what we've learned. I say we loosely - this precious three year old remembers every word, song and dance. Me? Mostly no comprendo. But I'm overjoyed the entire time because, all you dear bloggy friends - are you seeing her smile? Senorita Sunshine.

Listen: De Colores
Read: Oso Polar

The Eric Carle books are asombrosa. Your children will have these memorized after a few reads.

We look forward to this beauty each week. Did you know the library offers Adult/Teen Spanish classes? Chinese for Pre-School Kids? To view all programs offered by the library, click here.

My son just started Spanish class (4th grader). I put him in a Spanish class at the library when he was only 3 and you are right, the retention young children have of multiple languages is unbelievable - even scary! Scary? Yes, scary to think many leave their young children's minds in front of a TV for 3 hours a day. As much as kids are sponges, they absorb the good, and the bad when exposed to it.

The library does a great job at meeting the needs of the community, teaching new things and ideas, while providing us all with free books to read. What a great contribution our libraries are!
