Families have been thrilled to have access to bilingual books. All kindergarten students are doing their early literacy in Spanish. Our native English speaking parents love having books in Spanish that also provide the stories in English, so they’re able to understand. The native Spanish speaking parents enjoy being able to read with their children in their first language.
