Spanish Resources for Summer Learning

Our Spanish and Literacy Specialist, Brenda, has shared some of her favorite resources with us for those wanting to keep up their Spanish learning during the summer. Thanks Brenda!

This is a great online site for bilingual storytime. 

It has songs, stories, and fingerplays in Spanish and English.  Cuentos y Cantos Storytime #1 

These Spanish books deal with race, struggle and identity:
