Over the past few weeks, I had the pleasure of featuring some bilingual authors from Illinois who are doing some great work. From young adult fantasy novels featuring Latinx girls to a novel that helps young people heighten their environmental consciousness, Latinx authors in the Chicagoland are up to some great things! But that’s not… Continue reading Academic Guest Spot: Nancy Dominguez Fret

This week, I have the pleasure of featuring another talented Latino author who recently published a novel about heritage, culture, and love for our planet. The Blue Q: The World As I See It tells the story of a world in peril and out of balance. The author, Dennis Avelar, vividly paints the story of… Continue reading Latinx Author Guest Spot: Dennis Avelar
When I was a child, I don’t recall seeing very many Latinx characters in the literature I read in school, the programs I watched on television or the movies I watched on the silver screen. Even though the times that we live in now are certainly more inclusive than generations past, there is still much… Continue reading Latinx Author Guest Spot: Candice Yamnitz

When it comes to my knowledge and experience… Continue reading Featuring Monthly Bilingual & Multilingual Education Highlights!

Stores often put… Continue reading Tips to Market your Self-Published Children’s Book (if you’re not tech savvy!)

As a children’s author, I’ve had the pleasure to meet… Continue reading Writing a Teacher’s Guide for Your Children’s Book
Se ha dicho mucho sobre la educación de las niñas: que no se les debe negar ser definidas por su género, que tienen el derecho exigir igualdad y que sus voces deben ser escuchadas. Sin embargo, no se ha escrito mucho sobre el papel de los padres en la crianza de estas jóvenes. He escuchado… Continue reading Los desafíos de criar niñas en un mundo misógino
A lot that has already been said about bringing up girls: Ones who refuse to be defined by their gender, that demand equality and to have their voices be heard. Not much is written about the role of parents in bringing up these young ladies, however! I have heard many parents (fathers especially) claim, “I… Continue reading The Challenges of Raising Girls in a Misogynist World
