Anyone 18 years or older, who resides in the US, can sign up to receive a free bilingual book, monthly. Teachers who sign up will receive a set of 20 books to distribute to their students (one time only). How great is that?!
They also host a contest which authors and illustrators may enter. Authors may submit a picture book manuscript, in English and Spanish or just in Spanish. Illustrators may submit illustrations alone or with picture book text. The winners will receive $1000 and will have their stories published and distributed to families nationwide!! Read the rules here (although it says the contest ended in Dec 2011, I have it on good authority that it is still going and is bigger and better than ever!).
Have fun reading - good luck to those who enter the contest!!
