It's birthday season in the Barrios family! My children were both born on the same day, and my sister and I were born two weeks a part. So the four of us all have had our birthdays consecutively over the past three weeks. For this week's Storytime Bilingue, we celebrate Tia Margaret's birthday with another birthday book, and a guest-star appearance by the cumpleanera.
My sister has helped with many of our story times from behind the camera as our videographer, but this week we got her in front of the camera to read a bilingual birthday book. Since Tia Margaret speaks Spanish fluently, she animately reads both parts to the kids. Because it is actually quite a challenge to read aloud on video with two squirmy toddlers on your lap, Tio Robby also joined the story time to celebrate and wrangle one of my children.
We chose The Birthday Box/ Mi Caja de Cumpleanos by Leslie Patricelli, a whimsical story about a toddler who loves the box his present comes in just as much as he loves the present inside it, and the story recounts their imaginative adventures on his birthday. So sit back and enjoy the story, and let's wish Tia Margaret "Feliz Cumpleanos!"
