I was wondering if anyone could recommend a family style radio station suitable to listen to during breakfast time or in the afternoon with younger kids. I'm trying to get more native speaker input into our day...but so far I haven't found a nice radio station.
If you are into podcasts, I listen to NPR all the time but that might be suitable for older kids. Then there is Disneyradio for kid friendly songs. Also, you might want to go through iHeartRadio app and search through there. Hope this bit helps!

Great idea! I don't know why it hadn't occurred to me sooner. I also started listening to NPR in the mornings and I'm enjoying it a lot. There's something to live radio (unlike podcasts) that makes you feel connected and accompanied...
But it would be great to have an Internet station in English dedicated to children. I tried the Disney station but I can't get it here in Mexico (it redirects automatically to Disney latinoamerica).
Mayken: We're at Harry Potter Book Night at the English bookshop in Paris. The activities are all in French but my daughter teamed up for the treasure hunt with a girl who also speaks ouf ml German!

Mayken: My daughter found the secret stash of ml books I'd bought at the closure sale of the ml book store two months ago and hidden away for later. Guess it's a good time for new books now, right?

Caro C.: My baby (16mo) perfectly knows what "hi5" means and readily shows her hand even when we are not showing our hand first. It feels like the first minor blossom of the bilingual seed.

Adam Beck: Nice, Caro! Give her a high-five from me! And I look forward to hearing about many more happy developments to come!
