As soon as babies are born, they begin to learn. So one of the best things you can do for a baby or young child is to make sure they hear a lot of words.
That's what we learn from Porque me amas ("Because You Love Me"), a new photonovela from Bright Beginnings. The booklet helps Spanish-speaking parents learn easy ways to teach language to their young children. You can download it from this link.
Babies imitate the words they hear, and that's how they learn -- when they "babble," they're practicing! The more words they hear, the faster their brains grow, and the more ready they are for school.
So giving your child a head start can be as simple as talking, or singing a song! Learn more at porquemeamas.org.
