Why Bilingual ~ Multilingual? 

The Language of Play & Words

MarlaGran: The Girl Who Wants to Live Creatively is crafted not just in bilingual words, English-Spanish, but also in the universal language of play. This dual approach bridges the gap between how children communicate through play and how they interact with words. We've woven together playful expression and linguistic learning for two key reasons:

Language Learning: The book mirrors the languages children hear at home, in school, and in their communities, facilitating word acquisition that resonates with their daily experiences.

Worlds Collide and Connect: By aligning the imaginative world of children with the verbal world of adults, we create a shared space where understanding and communication flourish. This helps build a meaningful bridge between the imaginative minds of children and the more structured adult world.

Meet the Author:

Hello! I'm originally from Greece, and now a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in California, blending my expertise with my passion as author, speaker and artist. With an MA in Expressive Arts Therapy from CIIS and a specialization in Authentic Movement, I've always been fascinated by the uninhibited and authentic nature of children - both those around us and the inner child within every adult. My belief in our inherent creativity and the transformative power of play and Expressive Arts led me to create 'MarlaGran: The Girl Who Wants to Live Creatively.' This resource is more than a book; it's a testament to the healing journey of our inner child and a celebration of the imaginative spirit in all of us. My hope is that MarlaGran becomes a part of your story, inspiring you and your loved ones to unleash your creative potential and rediscover the joy and enthusiasm in life.
