Bilingual First Books/English-Spanish - All books in this series
Friendly teddy bears teach new words to very young boys and girlsand they do it in two languages. Preschool children get an early introduction to a second language when their parents show them books in the charming Bilingual First Books series. This title is bilingual in English and Spanish, and gives toddlers a head start in learning a foreign language at the same time they are learning their own. Charming two-page spreads show color pictures of familiar objects all relating to the book?s general theme. The word on the left for parents to read aloud is in English, and the word on the right is its Spanish equivalent. The last page of each book aids parents with a list of all words introduced in the book plus easy pronunciation rules. (Ages 2 and older)
From the reviews:
"Like the previous titles in the outstanding Bilingual First Books series for beginning Spanish-speaking readers (or Spanish learners), this features two teddy bears. This time they introduce new words about food. The simple, bilingual presentations, easy-to-read labels with Spanish pronunciation guides, and colorful illustrations make books in this series wonderful for toddlers and the very young as they learn basic words in two languages."
