Books… a great, fun and familiar resource!

Over the weekend we were invited to have a play date with a wonderful family in our town. We were talking about books and wondering about what kind a books should we get for our kids.

We both agree that we need to consider books that have characters or themes that are attractive to our kids. Since both of our kids speak Spanish already, we have more research to do. But regardless of level, choose books based on their interest and age. Our son’s first book was ‘Buenas noches Luna’, the classic Spanish version of ‘Goodnight Luna’. How he love this story for such a long time!

You can choose books as simple as ‘Buenas noches Luna’, as Curious George adventures. The most important is that your child keeps develop his literacy skills and for sure enjoy his reading time.

This is just a quote…

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
