Dos Idiomas, One Me – A Book Review

 

Dos Idiomas, One Me is the story of a young girl who feels torn between two languages. At home, she speaks Spanish, at school, she speaks English, and she finds herself resenting the fact that she has to translate her thoughts and feelings. Then, she realizes that being bilingual is a gift. She begins to have fun navigating the space of inclusivity and starts to relish the role of teacher and translator.

By equally incorporating Spanish and English, Dos Idiomas, One Me promotes biliteracy. As young readers see their experiences reflected in the story of another dual-language speaker, they can feel encouraged to embrace all aspects of themselves.
“A charming book depicting bicultural identity. Maggy Williams takes the reader into the struggle and joy a child experiences while not feeling ni de aquí, ni de allá, and yet from both sides.” – Anel Duarte, artist and poet
“Such a unique, inspiring story that captures the heart within seconds of reading! A powerful, dynamic rendition of what it means to be a bilingual child. Every family should read it!” – Sabrina Suarez, artist, advocate, and community leader
“Esta pequeña historia guarda un gran tesoro. Para todos los niños que tienen la gran oportunidad y capacidad de aprender dos o más idiomas a la vez, de una forma natural. Que puedan apreciar y sentir la fortuna de ser completamente bilingües desde una edad temprana. Una ventaja con la que contarán el resto de sus vidas y que podrá ser de gran ayuda para ellos mismos y muchos otros a su alrededor. Un lindo recurso para todos los padres que quieren enseñar a sus hijos la riqueza de formar parte en varias culturas a la vez.” – Irma Erichsen, author and artist
“Dos Idiomas, One Me illustriously guides young readers and their grownups towards understanding that differences make us unique and special. Beautifully written!” – AnnaMarie Jones, co-creator of the Demystifying Diversity Podcast.

About the Author
Maggy Williams started writing at five years old and hasn’t stopped since. She loves creating stories for young readers because they have the best imaginations and because she never wants to grow up. When she’s not writing, she enjoys acting and comedy improv, which is basically just make-believe for grown-ups.

Dos Idiomas, One Me caught my attention because I work in a church with a large Hispanic population. The kids all are bilingual so I thought this would be a great book to read and it was. I enjoyed the outlook of the young girl. I never thought that maybe the kids feel a bit torn, like living in two worlds because they speak two languages. They have no idea how much this will benefit them in their futures.
Maggy Williams does a great job with the simple language and with getting across the point that being bilingual is a good thing. I am so impressed with Williams’ writing I want to get another of her books for my grandson. You should, especially if you live in a community that has a large bilingual population, pick up a copy of Dos Idiomas, One Me. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
