I decided to follow Raquel 's great tip about teaching my daughter the ml vocabulary of what she is learning at school.
One of the topics on my daughter's nursery school curriculum this year is the circus. Would you have any suggestions of good books and/or other resources on the topic? Our mls are English and Spanish but don't hesitate to share the titles and author's name in your ml as I often find that some books are published in many languages and I could look it up to test my luck!

Peter Spier has a book titled Circus. It’s a sentence or two of text per page and huge detailed illustrations. My favorite book by him is Noah’s Ark. It only has text on the first page, and the rest is a wordless book with very engaging illustrations. Tons to talk about and works for any ml!
I like the book "CÓMO ABRIÓ DON NICANOR EL GRAN CIRCO VOLADOR" by Mar Benegas. She is a wonderful Spanish poet and all her books are wonderful. It might be too complicated if it is for your younger one. You can see more about the books with links to several reviews of the book here.
Amy: And to all other fellow zookeepers of course!

Wojtek: Yesterday my daughter used a Polish word in an English sentence. From time to time she does it (don't know if I should be happy about that), but anyway what was amusing about that, she said it with an English accent!

Wojtek: I feel the English accent in our monolingual family has seemed to be something unreachable but in that mixed sentence, I heard the difference. It surprised me slightly.

Amy: So cute Wojtek! And such a lovely piece of news!

Mayken: Adam Beck, Amy, she got a lot of ml exposure but there's only so many times I can watch a Bibi & Tina DVD. Glad she's back at school today.

Mayken: My daughter's school had the annual lantern pageant yesterday. It always moves me to tears when I see the kids stand and belt out the songs in our ml. This year, the ml kids also recited a short poem on St Martin.
