Scholastic Entertainment has created yet another awesome show that spans across cultures. “Maya and Miguel” does an excellent job of portraying Latino culture. Maya and Miguel Santos are two young fraternal twins that love to have adventures in their community and at school.
For instance, in one episode, Maya encourages her friend Maggie to run for class president. Maggie wanted to place pink puff balls on the tops of pencils and change all of the white paper in the school to pink paper. However, upon further examination of her motives, Maggie realized that she was not good at the things that truly matter, like paying attention to other people’s problems. One she realized this she gladly stopped running for class president and gave the nomination to Simon, a fellow classmate.
The show does an excellent job of teaching about diversity. It also places emphasis on serving the family and community, which is a great message for any child to hear. Click here more fun and interactive games with Maya and Miguel.
For even more cool stuff, why not try kids backpacks? We also have clothing, birthday invitations, and more, all of which you can personalize. In the words of Maya, “¡Éso es!” (That’s it!).
