My daily challenge to be more Brazilian was satisfied tonight as I read my daughter a book entirely in Portuguese. It was a challenge for both of us, and I won’t claim to have understood all of it, but we got through it.
Normally, I migrate toward the English language kids books when it comes to our nightly reading and let my husband handle the Brazilian books if requested. But kids books are a great way to learn, and though I speak English exclusively with my daughter, I want her to know that I support the Portuguese cause.
Tonight, we both picked up some new words.
