Have you heard? May is Bilingual Literacy Month!

May is designated as Bilingual Literacy Month, a month-long literary celebration to motivate families to read every day in English and Spanish. The goal of the campaign is to promote reading and raise awareness about the benefits of raising bilingual kids.

Research shows that children who are not reading proficiently by 3rd grade are more than twice as likely not to graduate from high school. To help improve the learning environment at home, Bilingual Literacy Month encourages families to incorporate reading time into their daily lives as a means of nurturing this one-on-one activity outside the classroom.

Throughout the month of May and every day, we encourage you to:

  • Pledge to read daily with your kids. As a parent, you are your child’s first teacher. Set the example by reading at home. Turn off the TV and other electronic devices during reading time. Give your child your full attention and ask questions about the story as you are reading along.
  • Choose the right book. Select books that are enjoyable, relatable, and appropriate for your child’s reading level. That way reading won't feel like "homework." Click Books on the top menu to browse our collection of bilingual books.
  • Share how you celebrate bilingual literacy on social media with the hashtag #ReadConmigo for a chance to win books every week!
