Mom Wishing to Give the Gift of Language to Her Family Wins Bilingual CD and DVD from Boca Beth!

Friday, November 28th, 2008

Congrats to our new amiga Regina and her family in the Southeastern part of our great United States for winning the Sing Along with Boca Beth CD and our I Like Animals / Me gustan los animales DVD – both of which are in 100% eco-friendly packaging and ready to provide hours and hours of bilingual fun for young children!

  

We hosted our own Giveaway right here on my Boca Beth blog for moms and teachers to start their holiday shopping early … here is what Gina wrote in her comment about our FREE YouTube mini lesson on Veo animales / I See Animals (a song that I wrote just for the Boca Beth animals DVD and the physical fitness CD from our Boca Beth Program):

“Me gusta el video mucho! Great job. I am trying to teach my kids a little Spanish” … 

And on her comment posted directly on our YouTube video comment section Gina wrote these words:

“Awesome video! It really engages the children and the song is catchy. They already know the tune so it really works. I am going to show my kids tomorrow!”
Thanks to all who entered the random drawing…look for more fun techniques, tips and tools on how to raise a bilingual child the fun and easy way.  That is how we do it here at Boca Beth

It was another wonderful Sunday morning at Calvary Baptist Church in Clearwater, FL today.  I had missed two Sundays with Pastor Willy Rice, and it felt like months since I had heard him share the word of the Lord.

Now don’t get me wrong…I read my Bible often, I refer to Scripture a lot more than ever before during these challenging times, and I talk with fellow Christians about our Father and how he will provide, how he will be here for us.  But it just felt good to worship this morning with my church family and to soak in Pastor Willy’s words about “What’s in Your Wallet?”

As we enter this week of Thanksgiving I want to thank God for the talents he gave me to be such a patient and loving mom, a wonderful wife full of appreciation and love, a caring sister and friend who listens and communicates with kindness and above all I thank Him for leading me to a life full of Christ.

I thank all of you who have put your belief in my Boca Beth product line, who have shared your children and their love of learning, and who continue to stand by me as I find my way along this journey of being a good business woman at the same time being a kind Christian.

Happy Thanksgiving to all in the week and year and lifetime ahead

Congratulations To the Winner of our Boca Beth Gigante Bag! ¡Felicitaciones!

Monday, November 17th, 2008

We had 124 responses to our recent giveaway that features our Boca Beth bilingual music CDs, Spanish and English DVDs for kids, two BOCA the puppets and language teacher/amigo, our 44-page bilingual book that brings coloring, activity fun and language learning all together PLUS a mini maraca and egg shaker all contained neatly inside of a canvas child-sized Boca Beth Backpack!

Did you miss entering the contest?  No worries.  Another one starts tomorrow, Tuesday, 11.18.08!!!

In the meantime, please join me in congratulating Sharon Martinez who has 8 grandchildren.  Sharon never really took the time to teach her own children Spanish and now is committed to helping her children’s children learn her native language.  Join me in cheering her on for her efforts and for being the winner of this terrific bilingual educational set of FUN, FUN, FUN!!!!

Wondering how we choose the winner….we print off the names, paper cut them into strips, fold up the strips of paper, put them into a sombrero and then ask our Executive Producer (my husband, Dennis) to select one piece of paper.  It’s that random of a selection process.  So YOU could win next time.

On a less fun note, but one that I must ask for your help on…..the only way I have been able to stay in business during these difficult times is by being kind and candid in my communications.  I need to ask all of you to never burn my CDs or DVDs to share with friends and if you lend out my products to others, please make sure they realize that burning CDs and DVDs is first of all illegal and second of all will be the thing that puts a small business owner out of business very quickly.

Thanks so much.  Gracias.  I know I can count on you all to help me through these challenging times.

Happy Educating!  ¡ Sea feliz educando!

ARE YOU READY TO WIN BIG THIS WEEK?!?!?!

I am so ready to start a new week with a new mindset and a fresh sense of hope.

I want to share our Boca Beth Program with millions of families and teachers and schools and programs world wide.  I am hoping as our new President takes office January 20, 2009 that there WILL be a strong push for early childhood education PLUS a strong push for world class education (two things President elect Obama spoke of often).

 

Here is how you can win this entire Boca Beth Gigante Bag!!!!  Value of $74.99!!!

 

WIN all three of the Boca Beth bilingual music CDs that have won various parenting and education awards along with our two full length bilingual DVDs that feature BOCA the puppet as the language amigo for children around the world and our 44-page Spanish & English language learning book that homeschooling parents use daily and teachers love to reproduce for classroom use and stay-at-home moms carry with them in the diaper bag for the older sibling to keep busy with.

Oh, and did I mention that also in this Gigante Prize Bag you will receive not just one, but TWO of the BOCA puppets along with a mini maraca and brightly colored egg shaker?!?!?!?  All together the value is $74.99!!!

Here is how the contest works (for US Residents Only):

We will choose the winner randomly by pulling the winner out of a sombrero full of entries.  If you want your name entered more than once, you can do one of two extra things:

Changing the World One New President Elect at a Time! New Promises for Our Children's Future!

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

As Oprah said, “It’s Big, Bold and Beautiful!” 

The election of Barack Obama as the 44th President of our United States of America took place last night … were you there witnessing history?

No matter which candidate you cast your vote for you had to be drawn to the magnitude that this election and its results means to our nation.

President-Elect Obama during acceptance speech

He has called for many things during his campaign, and as a mom and teacher and entrepreneur many of his promises for change to our education system, to the focus on early childhood education and to providing assistance for small business owners get me excited and hopeful for a brighter future.
Stay tuned world…………great things are ahead as this new president realizes it will take more than one person to right this great nation and steer us towards a better place nationally, internationally and globally.
May God protect him, May we respect him, and May all of us unite as one to move beyond Election 2008.
