Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to wind this bilingual set for teachers to share with the young children Early Head Start birth to age 3 years.
I would use these to facilitate read alouds for our preschoolers in Special Needs classrooms.
I follow you on Twitter, I’m @ShauntrellLeaks.
I would read these books with my ELLs during blended learning.
I am a children’s therapist. I utilize books with my clients. It is important to teach children so they have an understanding of the world around them and how it works. I believe these books would be great educational tools in reference to boundaries and etiquette.

If I were to get these books, I’d use them with my bilingual youth in my Domestic Violence Counseling Program.
I am a certified trainer. I conduct workshops in different topics including ” Health and Safety Basics” six hours training for the CCR&R I work with. I think this is can incorporate the books in my presentations.
I would love to have these books in my classroom library to teach and help the children have a better understanding of both languages that we are all the same no matter the language.
would be so happy to use them with my 1800 kids and families between my two schools!
We would utilize the books in our early childhood programs including state funded program and our Learning Link – free to families with children 0 – 5
I would use this book in my future classroom for next year.
We are a small title 1 school that does not have a lot of funding for “extra” books. I would use this in my classroom and share with others. I share a door with the ESL teacher and I know she would love to share them for her students.
I would use this in my self-contained classroom!
I work with community teamwork and would love these board books for our lessons!!!! such good information in them!!!

Hello! I would give the books to a local migrant Early Head Start program to coincide with our partnership for lifting language with DLL’s.
We’ve just began a bilingual story time every Wednesday at 11 AM. I would love to have books for the children to check out and maybe our story teller use the books.
Our coaches at UAMS travel around the state of Arkansas & conduct the REACH Teacher Training Program to Licensed Early Childhood centers. REACH aims to enhance teachers ability to support children’s social-emotional skills through strategies based on the Social/Emotional Teaching Pyramid. We prioritize programs with children who have been referred by a licensing specialist & who serve vulnerable populations, such as low income & foster care. We serve a very diverse population & being able to share the English/Spanish bilingual books from the Best Behavior Series would be a wonderful supplement for all the teachers & children we serve!
They would be a great resource to our Dual Language staff to support our class circles that happen in both languages.
I’d distribute them amongst the children on my campus. We are trying to make reading fun and trying to encourage parents to read to their children. It would be easier for Spanish speaking parents to have bilingual books to read to their kids so they too can get something from this series.

I work in a preschool that has bilingual students and we are building our library with books with both text languages to support all in our community.

More than 50% of the students we serve are Hispanic. I would use these books with our families learning classes to increase the number of bilingual reading materials for parents and children to read together. We need more books like these to be mirrors reflecting and building upon more diverse identities. In particular, we’d use these books to expand the bilingual section of a classroom library that promotes free choice reading and increased engagement in children’s literacy activities.
Would love extra books for my in home childcare! We love to read! Liked on Facebook, instagram and Pinterest! Have a beautiful day!
I work with a high population of Spanish speaking parents and students. I am a Parent Educator and it has been challenging recruiting funds for book give-a-ways. I am constantly buying books to give-a-way to parents. We also have a backpack literacy program to encourage parents to read to their children.
I work with a variety of students K-12 in a small district in numerous capacities, GT, Enrichment, Middle School Spanish class, High School National Honor Society. I try to get to know all students I come in contact with, to help them feel good about themselves. I enjoy greeting them in the hallways, emailing something positive or specific to older students, helping them advocate for themselves at all levels, being their to listen when they share, being their voice when they are voiceless, observing what they do well and sharing positive comments, eating lunch together, supporting their dreams in any way I can, acknowledging diversity and embracing the positive, writing positive notes to them, and even admitting mistakes when necessary to help them realize we all make mistakes. Then I encourage all to try to weave mistakes into something positive. Modeling tolerance and sharing knowledge to open mindsets whenever possible. I work in a professional community where many of my colleagues also rise to the high calling of facilitating a positive, safe, open social emotional environment cross age and culturally.
We would use these as a great supplement to our social-emotional curriculum already in place!
I would use these books to help enhance my library, as my school age children are hungry for new books to read.
I teach a Families Learning ESOL class for immigrant parents and children. We have a classroom library where parents can borrow books to share with their children at home. Winning some of these books would help our students and their children develop literacy and social skills while also recognizing and honoring two languages.
I would help my teachers on our journey to expose our children to different cultures and languages.
I am a teacher in in a 1 & 2 year old classroom with a majority of spanish speaking families. I would use these books in my classroom to offer more book options for these children.

If I were to be given these books, I would give them to teachers who have recently gotten Spanish speaking students in their classrooms. We’re a small school which is not very diverse, so we don’t have the resources needed to make these new students feel welcome and supported.
I would share these books with my childcare clients.
I would use the books in nurse office to help children when they come in with concerns
I would use the books in the classroom encouraging my teachers to work with children and families that are from a diversity cultural background. The books would help us show our families that we as a program accept their cultural and want to learn more about their language/s.
These books would help us build a library that supports home language.
StreatorTCOC EHS/Head Start would use these with our dual language learners in the classrooms plus we would use these to teach the children to use words in Spanish as well as English in a fun/educational way!
I would like to use these books to teach social skills to students with special learning needs.
Behavior concerns are escalating in classrooms so we would use these books to supplement the several social/emotional curricula that we implement on a daily basis.
As our program grows in diversity, we could use more bilingual materials in our program to meet that growing need. We are working hard on obtaining materials and this would really help.
We would use these books to support our SEL curriculum in our bilingual special ed and bilingual inclusion classes.
These books will be a great addition to my Spanish book library here at school.
Followed on Pinterest!
I would share/give them with my families on home visits!
These would be wonderful in our classrooms to work with our Diversity and Inclusion company initiative!
These books would be fantastic to have in the preschool classes for Spanish time. At some point, there is always a toddler/child or a few in a classroom who is dealing with one of these behaviors. It would be great to bring in these books so they could hear how it was properly dealt with among friends. Also, the children would hear and learn new vocabulary.
I’d donate them to a non-profit organization I assist with in getting books in to the hands of young readers who are English learners and may not have access to literature due to a variety of circumstances such as low SES, homeless/in shelter and so forth.
I would love these books to help with social skill lessons in K-5!
I teach a 5th grade life skills class in an urban school district and most of my kids are reading at a 1st grade through 3 grade level. I am always looking for resources to add to my class.
I would use the paperback books to help our English language learners. We have very few Spanish books so this would be a huge help to our school.
These books have been so helpful in my classroom in the past and as I transition to a dual-language school, I would use them to effectively teach positive social-emotional behaviors to English, Spanish, and dual-language students!
As a school counselor, I would love to use these in my social skills lessons!
would impleament them in my classroom. read a page in english and then read it in spanish.
I would use these books for children who are learning English. I would also read it with them and ask their parent to read it to them too. Since education starts in the home.
We have a number of Spanish-speaking families and we can always use bilingual books to send home for these families to read together. Reading them aloud in the classroom in both languages is also a great learning experience for all children.
