We are three women who have experienced mothering our children in a country not our own, with a language foreign to us. It was hard. We wanted to create materials that are focused on helping mothers say the phrases they need to say to parent their children, and giving kids phrases they need to be able to play in their new language. We want to help parents and children have joy and confidence by giving them the right words to build a bilingual relationship within and outside their family.
