I have just made an agreement with another mom to do a book swap. Our daughters attend bilingual school together and her daughter is French, speaking only French at the moment. They have loads of French books, where we have tons of English. So I suggested a weekly book swap. She loved the idea so we have agreed to swap 7 books a week. We own a lot of French books, but not nearly as many as English, so thought this is a great idea to save money. If anyone knows others who might swap books with you this could help. Even if you are both looking for say Spanish books, you could swap at least the books you have. Even if it's just one book a week, at least it's one book a week.
Country (residing now): France Country (originally from): France Children, Ages: 4 and 1 year old girls Majority Language: French Minority Language(s): Spanish (ml1 - "dominant") and English (ml2 -"recessive")

Mayken: Yay Amy! - I'm curious about the letter my 6-year-old wrote us during her class trip (teacher-supervised activity). Will there be ml in it? I hope it arrives before she comes back!

Mayken: My daughter's letter from her class trip arrived - she wrote one message in ML to Dad and another in ml to me. Her first letter in ml without a ml person to help her!

Mayken: My mom got a lovely postcard in ml too from my 6-year-old daughter on her field trip! Another precious keepsake! (OK, I prepared the card with address and stamp ahead of time, but she did the writing all by herself.)

Mayken: Our ml section will have a flea market stand at the school fair with used books, games, DVDs and CDs for sale. I donated 2 games, promised my daughter she could choose something. (Proceeds are for the school's ml section.) Love the idea!
