Have you heard? May is Bilingual Literacy Month!

In May 2014, Read Conmigo kicked off Bilingual Literacy Month, the first month-long literary celebration of its kind in the country. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness about the benefits of raising bilingual kids and motivating families to read together in both English and Spanish.

Research shows that children who are not reading proficiently by 3rd grade are more than twice as likely not to graduate from high school. To help improve the learning environment at home, Bilingual Literacy Month and Read Conmigo encourage families to incorporate reading time into their daily lives as a means of nurturing this one-on-one activity outside the classroom.

This year Read Conmigo is celebrating the 6th Annual Bilingual Literacy Month with an array of exciting activities for families and educators nationwide. Here are some ways you can join the celebration:

  • Nominate your favorite teacher for the 2019 Read Conmigo Bilingual Educator of the Year Award. Five educators will be awarded a $100 cash prize and a Read Conmigo book collection for their class.
  • Join the “31 Day Bilingual Book Reading Challenge” and pledge to read daily with your kids during the month of May. For free bilingual children’s books, visit the Read Conmigo bookshelf.
  • Share how you celebrate Bilingual Literacy Month on social media with the hashtag #ReadConmigo for a chance to win books every week!
