For this week's bilingual story time, we have a bilingual birthday book in celebration of Mami's birthday! Three years ago and one year ago, I received the greatest birthday presents of all--Maya and then Mateo were born exactly one week before my own birthday. But that means Mami's birthday is now a bit of an afterthought. That's okay, because seeing their joy over celebrating the next year of their life is so much more rewarding than gaining another year on my age!
So for this week, we are continuing with our theme of birthday books. Alicia's Happy Day/ El Did Mas Feliz De Alicia by Meg Starr is a special story is narrated in English and Spanish, about little Alicia who spends her birthday being greeted and celebrated by all of her friends in her neighborhood.
Although we weren't able to celebrate our birthdays with all of our loved ones around this year, we look forward to when this quarantine is completely over and we can all join in the chorus of "Happy Birthday/ Feliz Cumplanos!"
