Teaching My Infant Spanish

Has anyone come across a book that I can read to my infant that teaches him words in English and Spanish? I would actually like to learn myself as we go along. I know it's early (he's 4 months), but I thought if we started now, he may benefit from it. I would be interested in books or DVD's, CD/tape. Thank you!

What can I do next?

Dora The Exlporer movies and books are English and teach spanish along the way. Kids I know seem very interested in them. It is a place to start anyway.

This is funny, I am trying to do the same right now with my 15 month old baby boy!! I bought a sturdy cardboard book at Half Price Bookstore. It has little "windows" in it that you and baby can open and close and underneath there are numbers, colors, shapes and animals explained in the English and Spanish language. It's a lot of fun for both. Mostly my son is just interested in turning the pages and open the windows but I can read the words to him and learn them at the same time.
Have fun!

One of the Disney Channel programs is called Handy Manny. It is about a handyman and his tools. Check it out, and if it is suitable, you can watch it together and repeat the words in both languages for extra emphasis. As you go through your day, reuse the words in both languages as best as you can. Write down the words and keep adding them to your interactions with your son. Check Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Waldenbooks for books featuring Manny and his tools. Sorry, this is the best I can come up with.

Kudos to you!! You have no idea how easy it is for little ones to learn a foreign language when they are introduced to it before age 2! I found a ton of websites when I typed "bilingual child* books", but found one with an extensive list:


Just scroll down the list and you will see Spanish and several have Spanish/English at the end of the decriptor. Also check your local Headstart program and local library. Our town has a mountain of bilingual tools available for the asking; perhaps yours does too. Buena suerte!

I've found some books at 1/2 price books and a thrift stores. find out when they have cartoons on spanish chanels (telemundo, galavision, univision) and start watching those. I know sometimes they have sesame street. Usually saturday mornings (very early so you may want to record)

Good luck!

There is this toy in the shape of a phone at Wal-Mart. It is a Hooked On Phonics toy. My husband and I bought it for our son before we depoyed a few months ago. Our son LOVES it! It has a switch at the bottom for English/Spanish. And it says so many phrases in English and Spanish! There is even a switch at the top for learning/games/counting/abc's ect! We picked it up for about $15-20. (Look in the learning section in the toy section at Wal-Mart)

I have a cd for my son called "Baby Einstien. Numbers Nursery". This has counting in lots of different languages. This might help some.

Dora the Explorer or Go Diego are both great. Both of my daughters love these shows and it helped with my spanish too :)
