I’m excited to announce my first give-away!! I’ve mentioned that I have tons of things to give away-books for teachers and adults, children’s books, etc. So, today is the day!

51b1u60auzl_sl500_aa240_The first give-away will be a book of Spanish poems for children: Arco Iris de Poesía: Poemas de las Américas y España. The book is a hard-back book containing 31 poems written by authors from Latin America and the United States. The book has beautiful, colorful pictures on each page of poetry! I think that the book is a wonderful resource for teachers in bilingual programs and/or parents who are promoting bilingualism within the home. All the poems are in Spanish!

The following countries and poets are represented in the book:

  • Argentina: Leopoldo Lugones and José Sebastián Tallon
  • Bolivia: Oscar Alfaro
  • Brasil: Marina Colasanti and Ana Maria Machado
  • Chile: Gabriela Mistral and Alicia Morel
