Kids Books We Love: My Little Donkey / Mi Burrito

A year ago we got a copy of the book My Little Donkey / Mi Burrito and it suddenly became son’s favorite book for the holidays season. What I really enjoy about this book is that when I’m reading it and singing it to my son, it brings back memories of my childhood and all the Christmas carols that I used to sing with my cousins back in Mexico.

What’s this book about?

This holiday book is based on one of the most popular Christmas carols in Spanish: “Mi Burrito Sabanero“ (The Little Donkey from the Savannah).

The book opens like an accordion, and you can expand the whole book in a line. The book also has two sides, so you can explore every page in Spanish in one side and English in the other side.  It’s a beautiful, great quality book, to add to your children’s book collection! The pages are also full of interactive lift-the-flap details that make the adventure of reading it more stimulating.

Halloween is getting closer and closer and I wanted to share with you these adorable mini party favor boxes created by Una Fiesta Bonita that you can download, print, assemble and fill with your favorite candy this Halloween. ‘

They are extra special since my son decided that he wanted to dress up like Frankie this year! We were so lucky to find part of the costume, the t-shirt and a Frankenstein head, in a thrift store, and then I sew some pants to complete the costume. Now we are planning on printing two of these cute mini boxes, one for him and one for mommy, to make out Trick-Or-Treating even more fun!

Kids Books We Love: She’s Got This

She Got This! You always have to get back up and try again, and you always have to believe in yourself. A great book for kids age 4 - 8 years old, to start a conversation about resilience and chasing dreams no matter the struggles you can find. | Live Colorful

We are so happy to share with you about Laurie Hernandez’s picture book, She’s Got This!. HarperCollins Children’s Books sent us a copy a few days ago. The story is so heartwarming and inspirational, and my son and I have been reading it almost every morning.

She’s Got This tells the story of Zoe, a little girl who dreams of flying—and becoming a gymnast. She enrolled in a school, and almost instantly realized that gymnastics was something she loved doing. She was so good at it too, and enjoyed practicing so much. When she falls for the first time off the balance beam, she was ashamed, scared and didn’t want to try again. Her parents and siblings shared with her great anecdotes about their own falls and how they stood up again, that inspired her to go back to practice the next day and see every fall as a way to learn something and grow.

The message behind the story is as simple and beautiful as this, You always have to get back up and try again, and you always have to believe in yourself. A great book for kids age 4 – 8 years old, to start a conversation about resilience and chasing dreams no matter the struggles you can find.

Laurie Hernandez’s career was affected in 2014, when her progress was stalled due to multiple injuries. She returned stronger than ever by becoming the 2015 US junior national champion!

We have been seeing and reading more about Laurie lately. It make us proud to connect in almost everything she stands for as a Latina and athlete, so we wanted to share this book with you too because we believe it’s a great one to add to your children’s book collection.
