This is the perfect gift for a child who's just starting his or her bilingual journey. My kids love the adorable panda bear and the best part is that the DVDs are only just one way to teach kids a second languages, there's also apps, books and music! 

Amazon, $44.96


Little Passports 2

I had been wanting to get this awesome gift for my kids forever and I finally subscribed a couple of months ago. Every month, they get to explore a new country and they've already learned a lot about Brazil and Japan, the two countries we've gotten so far. Beside the world edition, there's a USA edition and they recently launched an edition for preschooler. 

Little Passports, $10.95 to $13.95 a month depending on subscription

Coloreando CD 4

This fun CD by musician Marta Gomez and one of my favorite organizations that promotes bilingualism, Global Language Project, just won a Latin Grammy for Best Latin Children's album and once you hear it with your kids you'll see why. The CD is a copilation of traditional songs children sing in Latin America and I'm sure you know at least a couple of them. Congrats to Marta Gomez and GLP!
