In terms of language learning the HolaAmigo boxes I have ordered including the fall box have very high quality materials and are made to help non Spanish speaking parents support their children to learn another language. That said, because the program is aimed at primarily white, monolingual English speaking families, they lack authenticity of cultural aspects from Latin America. For example, fall is not all pumpkins and dried leaves with scarves in Mexico or much of southwestern US were many Mexican-American families live. So if you are looking for language learning without cultural or racial recognition of the history of Spanish, these boxes are more than adequate. If you are a Latinx family looking for cultural connections you won’t find them here.
I am very impressed with this box. Lots of different activities to practice common fall vocabulary in Spanish. I really like that there are books included. The crafts are simple and fun. The addition of the QR codes and songs is a really nice touch. I really think these are a fun way to spend time with your child while also learning Spanish.I am an elementary Spanish teacher, and these are definitely activities I would used in the classroom. Honestly-you get a LOT of bang for your buck also. Price is extremely reasonable. I plan on getting more themed boxes like this one to do with my six year old.
