 There are more than 37 million Spanish speakers in the United States, and it is by far the most spoken non-English language for people over the age of 5. Spanish is also the most spoken language of non-Hispanics in households in the United States.

The desire for parents to give their children exposure to a second language and the rapid growth of Hispanic populations in the United States is all the more reason to start an engaging bilingual storytime at your library.

In this interactive webinar program, Alicia Lemar will give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use to:

• Select appropriate titles for Bilingual Storytimes
• Teach rhymes and songs that will help children and adults recall the language
• Utilize props to further enhance language development

Learn the ins and outs of presenting a bilingual storytime from an experienced children’s librarian and bilingual storytime presenter. We’ll cover tips and tricks to make your bilingual storytime a success - even if you are not a native speaker or have limited knowledge of Spanish!
