My child loves anything and everything animals. Just this past week we made a wetland diorama with pond, animals, and all for his school project. So I found it fitting to learn about Singapore's wildlife and reserves for this month's Multicultural Kid Blogs' Global Learning for Kids Series exploring Singapore.

This past weekend little one celebrated his First Holy Communion. The ceremony at church was beautiful and afterwards we celebrated with family and friends with a party.
A lot of planning went into this party. I wanted it to be special. Especially since we didn't have a big celebration for our son's baptism.

For many years when I was single I would move back-and-forth from my mom's home in Puerto Rico to the U.S.A. or vice versa. I could book a flight, and be with her and my extended family whenever I wanted to. Living far away was not an issue.

Last year, little one and I had the opportunity to visit Switzerland's booth during an International Festival. We received a flag, travel brochures, and a map of Switzerland. Going through our continent boxes I realized we haven't explored more on Switzerland.
Eager to learn more I organized a small group of little one's friends to discover Switzerland! Unfortunately, little man was sick and we didn't have his friends over. Instead of his friends painting, he had me painting with him. :)

My child is constantly challenging himself when it comes to reading. He's above his reading level in English, and his newest reading obsession are chapter books. First it was Henry and Mudge, and now it's the Magic Tree House series.
In my hearts of hearts I want him to reach that same level in Spanish, too! However, as a mother raising a bilingual and biliterate child I need to keep it at his pace. So to peak his interest in venturing into reading Spanish chapter books I've compiled a list for him.

For the past few years I've been hosting book swaps for my son and his friends. It's an inexpensive way for us to find new books to add to our home library. Nevertheless, the books are in the community language.
We sent them a French/English Dr. Seuss bilingual book with a short note from little one; and she and her son sent us a children's book in Spanish with a sweet note.
Take a look at your friends and family living in another state or country and swap books with them. If you don't ask, you'll never know!
Please note that this is not to be confused with a children's book exchange type of chain/pyramid that I've seen circulating on social media.
Happy book swapping!

Through the past years we have received worldwide culture swaps from families from England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, and from our subscription to Little Passport.
Although, we did go over all the fun stuff that we received it was boxed away. Now it's waiting to be explored and played with again. So I had a few of little one's friends visit and we traveled to United Kingdom.
