beforeyouwerehereMaria keeps a new book by her bedside, “Before you were here, Mi Amor” by Samantha R. Vamos. It is beautiful and sweet and boldly illustrated and it has inspired conversations about the years before she arrived, and about the many months she lived in the warm embrace of my proud belly. 

I had the pleasure of doing the audio recording of “Before you were here…” for the wonderful site, Cody’s Cuentos, which offers free Spanish podcasts of traditional children’s stories. Subscribe, subscribe, subscribe if you don’t already. You can download the audio of Samantha’s book there at no cost. What a gift.

To read more about the book and its author, Samantha, please visit Cody’s Cuentos and see what Eleena, the site publisher, has written.

You also can find worksheets based on the book at Samantha’s website. Note she has a new book coming out next year, “The Cazuela that the Farm Maiden Stirred.”

I have no doubt it will be fabulous.
