Hola, my fellow Spanglishers! We're proudly forging our Spanish Sundays on KidTime StoryTime, and the latest addition to our reading-kid-books-aloud channel is a fairy-in-training named Alicia. As usual, the bilingual Storyteller (that's me) explains what's happening as we go along, so English-dominant kids can still follow along, enjoy & learn.
FELIZ DOMINGO A TODOS!

Stigma is a huge problem facing bilingual families, especially when the home language differs from the dominant language. Who's had experiences with this? How do you overcome it?
