New children’s book blog targets bilingual books and songs

LatinaLista — There's a new book blog in cyberspace these days. Yet, unlike Latina Lista's own Bookshelf that basically reviews non-fiction books for the adult market, the Latin Baby Book Club (LBBC) reviews books — can you guess — for children.

Yet, the LBBC has more than just book reviews. The site also carries reviews of:

bilingual songs and literature for children (ages infant to young adult), book suggestions for Latino parents, interviews with emerging and established authors, the official LBBC's Book of the Month/Libro del Mes, special events being held at local libraries and/or bookstores, and mucho, mucho más!

The book blog is the brainchild of Latin Baby founder Monica Olivera. Latin Baby is an online baby store boutique that carries bilingual and bicultural products for young families. Olivera wants to encourage reading in today's families, along with, promoting Spanish usage, and so she has teamed up with some other notable, entrepreneurial, bilingual moms to deliver their expert advice to help parents find those books their kids will most enjoy — in two languages.
And for those of us stuck on what kind of books would make good gifts for young ones, they offer great advice in that department too!
