Little one and I have been blessed with wonderful friends, and family who are always thinking of us! We’ve received Spanish children’s books from Spain, Colombia, Puerto Rico, and different parts of the U.S.A. how cool is that! Other times, I literally celebrate when I find a Spanish children’s book in our neck of the woods. Below you’ll see a collection of our fave Spanish books, and some English one, too that I’ve share on my Instagram account.
“Hispanic Heritage Month is a vitally important observance for the United States, perhaps now more than ever. According to the U.S. Census, there are 53 million Hispanics in the country. And yet every day media reports show an increasing hostility toward Hispanic immigrants and Spanish-speaking families as they are used for political platforms, promoting stereotypes and ignorant backlash.”

So I went with these sweets, and treats:
Tostadas – Guatemala – Fellow blogger Kristen from Toddling in the Fast Lane shared with me this simple recipe for Guatemalan tostadas, and the best part is that the kids assembled them themselves! I bought corn tostadas, refried beans, and queso fresco. I warmed up the refried beans a little, and the kids spread it over the tostadas, and sprinkled queso fresco over it.
We certainly kicked-off Hispanic Heritage Month in a blast! Now scroll some more so you can link-up and have an opportunity to win great prizes!

|Our coquí craft, and little one insisted on making one as an alien coquí with four eyes. 🙂|
¡Hasta la próxima!

Petroglyphs (or ‘stone symbols’) were carved on rocks all over Puerto Rico by the Taíno indians to record their lives, and daily life. For our lesson, I printed a sheet with Taíno symbols from here so little man can draw the symbols for the petroglyph.
Nitaínos carved elaborate cemíes and some were painted and decorated with gold and precious stones. Most of them had human facial or animal features carved on them representing a divine creator or a force of nature.
|Little one’s dujo and cemí made out of play dough. You can see on the replicas the facial human and animal features.|
