It’s time for a round-up! If you’ve been with us for any amount of time, you know that we are a bilingual family (Spanish/English). Which means Bilingual are just a joy to find, even better when they are Christian. Bilingual books make it so everyone in our mixed-language family can enjoy the same story. It makes it easier to throw minority language words into a Sunday School Lesson. Oh and it normalizes bilingualism in the lives of our littles.
Reasons to Invest in Bilingual Books:
1. You are a bilingual family!: Even if everyone in your immediate family is bilingual, that doesn’t mean grandparents or tios y tias are. Bilingual books ensures everyone in the family can enjoy reading together!
2.You are a children’s ministry leader in a mixed-language church: If you have any services in a minority language at your church, it’s a good guess that not all of your littles speak English at home. Whether incorporating bilingual books in your services, or simply providing bilingual materials in your church library. Bilingual books are a simple way we can show littles that God values their home language, and communicate to minority-language families that we value them and their heart languages.
3. You want to normalize bilingualism: Even if you are not a bilingual family, bilingual books can be a benefit to your home. Exposing littles to minority languages (especially in a Christian context) communicates to our littles that the Kingdom of God is made of every language. It also helps disciple our littles in showing welcome and inclusion to those that may not speak the same language.
