Scholastic Media’s award-winning TV series, Maya & Miguel™, is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and to mark the occasion, the series recently made its debut on iTunes – just in time for National Hispanic Heritage Month! This special month long event is September 15-October 15.
Even through it's just passed I still wanted to share with you the news that for the very first time, all 65 episodes of the energetic animated adventures of 10-year-old twins Maya and Miguel Santos are now available for download on iTunes! This collection features six volumes for hours of hilarious entertainment – and multicultural learning – anytime, anywhere!
As a member of a multicultural family and as a former teacher in both Northern California and Santa Fe, New Mexico, during which I had numerous students of Hispanic decent, I know how important it is that all children see themselves and their cultures represented in the media.
The long-running Maya & Miguel TV series, airing on PBS KIDS (check local listings), chronicles the exuberant exploits of the dynamic duo, Maya and Miguel, along with their relatives and friends, set against the backdrop of a culturally-rich neighborhood. Showcasing a positive portrayal of Latino family life, language and cultures, the series aims to promote the value of a diverse society while supporting English language learning.
In addition to iTunes, episodes of Maya & Miguel are available for digital download in the LeapFrog App Center.
I am pleased to share that I have a special Maya & Miguel package, that I know one of my lucky readers will enjoy! The package will include a “Spanish First Words” book, additional Maya & Miguel title and awesome temporary tattoos! Please use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter!
