Children's bilingual books
Have a look at our bi-lingual children's books. Most of us enjoy bi-lingual books because they reflect the unbelievable place where we are. Everywhere in the southwest and along the US-Mexico frontier, locals glide back and forth between English and SP. Joe, like most of our writers, was raised in the southwest of America.
His Spanish was inspired by the Spaniards of Mexico and the border area. It' different from the Spanish of Spain or Colombia or New York City. We believe that it should be a reflection of these things because languages are affected by cultures, the world around us and the world. It is our wish that the tales of Joe and all our bi-lingual writers are available to a domestic and foreign population.
It is also important to us that our books do not loose their location, their origins. Our aim is for the country's languages to retain a sense of local identity. Our aim is that these tales should mirror who our writers are through the languages they use. Have a look at our bi-lingual children's books.
