Criss Cross Mangosauce is an edutainment company founded in 2007 to foster children’s love for languages, cultures and performing arts. Criss Cross Mangosauce offers bilingual (English/Spanish) programs and products for libraries, schools and families interested in raising bilingual and globally minded children: Bilingual CDs and books; educational performances; workshops and on-line resources.

The concept was created by Irania Patterson (Children’s author, Storyteller and Educator) and Ana Lucia Divins (Singer-Songwriter and Multicultural Marketer).  Inspired by their own experience of raising bilingual children and working with bilingual audiences for many years, these Latina moms, performing artists and educators share with others their Hispanic heritage and Spanish language in a bilingual, fun and educational way.
