Losika Writes News — Bilingual kids
Have you ever sang the head and shoulders song in a different language? Well, let me teach you the Setswana version... Tlhogo, magetla, nko le molomo, sehuba, letheka, mangole le menwana... (Head, shoulders, nose and mouth, chest, hips, knees and toes) There you go, now to practice the pronounciations...
And if you ask "What if I FALL?" Oh but my darling, "What if you FLY?" Erin Hanson It's a crutch of mine to always think of ALL that can go wrong in everything I do🤯🤪. This over analysis and contingency planning can lead to fear of taking the next steps 👣👣. I am however, learning to trust that I can always learn from my supposed failures but to still embrace and open myself to opportunities that come my way. I got my spacesuit👨🏽🚀 ready and I sure am ready for blast off 🚀🚀. Happy new month 😊😘 .
When groups of people/languages/stories are omitted from books, we are taught that these people/languages/stories don't exist and aren't as important as those that are displayed. Losika Writes aims to change this, one book at a time. Everyone's story and language deserves to be heard Everyone should be able to find themselves in a book So spend that time reading with them and to them... Buckle up for the ride through all the universe and the many stories that lie within the pages of a book. Happy reading with @losikawrites
Children's books can act like mirrors and windows. Mirrors in that they can reflect on children's own lives and windows as they give them a chance to learn about someone's life. This helps to reduce stereotypes and reduces fear of the "other" if they get to meet them and learn about them from an early age. Everyone deserves to see themselves and their language in books.
