We are taking our mission to publish bilingual children's books
to another level!
Our new trilingual counting board book is a celebration of languages, numbers, and hummingbirds! Children and grown-ups ages 3 – 103 will be mesmerized by the hand-drawn illustrations as they learn to count from zero to 10 in English, Spanish, and Huasteca Nahuatl.
Many people who speak Spanish in North America today, have ancestors who spoke Nahuatl. At one time, Nahuatl was the main language used in ancient Mexico. Today, it is very much alive with over 1.7 million people throughout Mexico who speak a variety of this beautiful indigenous language.
This board book is the first in a series of concept books that introduces young children to basic skills critical to their cognitive development while exposing their ear to the sounds of other languages. The next book in this series will teach colors as the concept and will celebrate another indigenous language from Central Mexico, Otomí.
