BROOKLYN, N.Y., Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network ( HITN), the first non-commercial, Spanish-language media company that delivers educational programming to more than 42 million homes nationwide on satellite and cable and Highlights for Children, the leading family media brand and publisher of the most-read children's magazines in North America, announced their partnership last February to support Highlights High Five Bilingüe magazine. Over the last nine months, this iconic children's brand and the nonprofit commercial-free broadcast network supporting Hispanic families across the United States have collaborated on four videos, two online games, and several community events.
High Five Bilingüe was launched in the fall of 2014 to assist Hispanic families as they encourage their younger children (ages 2 to 6) in Spanish bilingual language development. The magazine, which is published monthly, features a range of read-along stories and poems, crafts, games, and puzzles in Spanish and in English to help children become confident speakers, readers, and writers in both languages. The magazine provides a free online audio edition read by native Spanish and English speakers, and the partnership with HITN supports and encourages the creation of additional multi-media content, including games and videos. Parents and kids can access High Five Bilingüe content from the HITN website or follow the direct link www.hitn.org/highlights.
