Each one of us has our own story, made up of family, friends, and bits and pieces of experiences that have changed us along the way. These are the stories our children will learn as they live their own story in real time. Each culture differs, but the childhood stories we cherish often remain the same.
Unfortunately, there is a barrier that divides cultures. It is not an ocean, a mountain, or a wall. The barrier is language. Bilingual books for kids allow us to tear down these barriers for generations to come. Italian, Spanish, or French children’s books (to name a few) allow a new generation to experience our favorite stories in a new way.
These language barriers are the only thing holding us back from telling a universal story that we can all relate to. Bilingual books give our children the chance to do just that.
