Are your kids bilingual? Would you like them to be? HBO Latino GIVEAWAY

I feel very blessed to have been raised in a bilingual household. I even attended bilingual school through the 4th grade! I truly feel this is why I am able to see the world from more than one point of view, a skill which has seen me though many difficulties. I've tried to raise my kids to be bilingual as well, but I somehow always lapse into English, despite my best intentions. So when I was approached by HBO Latino to review their kids' show "El Perro y El Gato" I was very excited to see how my kids would receive it.

They LOVED the show! Especially my 2.5 year old, who pretty much only speaks English. It's muy cute, easy to follow and the animation is very cool. Even my gringo husband picked up a few new words! Here's just a little taste...
Don't you just love it?

I have seen a short preview before, but my kids have never gotten a chance to see... I think I might download an episode for them. The little I have seen seems great.

I've seen a bit online and I think it's hilarious. My girls love it, too. It would be great to add this to my collection of DVDs that support our bilingual learning!

I have seen a preview of these videos, and I like them already. I was raised in a bilingual household. I love the Spanish language because it sounds like song to me. And knowing two languages has benefited me in so many ways. When I had children I so wanted to raise them bilingual so they could experience the music and experience the same benefits I've experienced because I am bilingual. But I fall back into English to0 often. I think these videos will help me keep Spanish and English flowing through my household.

I've never seen the show, but I would love to have my daughters watch it because I am the only one in the household that teaches them Spanish.

We love this show. We stayed at an aunt's house for awhile and I was amazed at how cool this show is! Everyone in the house liked it from 3-50 or so!
