Alianzas Family and Kids
Fun Recommendations para nuestras familias Latinas:


PBS Kids has two wonderful shows for our ninos and ninas. One is called Alma’s
Way and another is called Rosie’s Rules. PBS Kids is free on streaming services
and also has free apps for your phone or tablet.
In Alma’s Way, the show centers around Alma, a Nuyorican child from the Bronx,
NY, her family and neighborhood. The show focuses on problem-solving. A key
phrase you’ll hear from Alma is “I got to think about this one.” It’s a wonderfully
positive representation of the Bronx and Puerto Rican culture, showing how the
community works together with community gardens, playing stickball and the
community center run by her neighbor and former Breakdancer Frankie “Four
Feet.” Alma’s Way showcases the diversity that New York City is known for.
Rosie’s Rules is about an adorable Mexican girl from a mixed family living in
Texas. Oftentimes Rosie calls her abuela in Mexico City when she needs help
figuring something out. She may get confused or flustered but Rosie knows how
to calm herself by saying “breathe in, breathe out, now I’m ready to figure this
out!” It’s a great show to teach children calming strategies to help them think
clearly. Rosie loves learning and will also say “well that’s new information!” when
she learns something new.
