I'm a father raising a child with my wife in Taiwan.  He's bilingual in both Chinese and English.  I usually talk to him in English and stories through books.  I also speak Spanish, so I'm introducing it to him playfully. 
He's lucky to know that knowing languages is not abstract and difficult.  Every kid is a sponge, you have to water it and soak it.  I don't know if that makes sense.  It's challenging, frustrating, and fun.
I've been working on my blog about it.  It's short and simple.

Since I don't have access to a lot of Spanish books, I use the net for ideas..

Hi Tyeisha and Juan,

I just read these posts and then looked at your blogs and subscribed to them. They are really nice! Tyeisha I am also a non fluent Spanish speaker teaching my 3 year  old son Spanish. We live in Baltimore. I have been speaking to him in mostly Spanish since before he was 2 years old. It is a great challenge. Check out my blog if you have a chance and subscribe if you want- http://www.monolingualmami.com

Good luck,
e
