Overview


Friendly teddy bears teach new words to very young children--and in two languages! Bilingual First Books give little boys and girls an early start in learning a foreign language at the same time that kids are learning their own language. Books are arranged as a series of brightly illustrated two-page spreads, each spread showing teddy bears engaged in an activity that kids will recognize immediately. A simple word that describes the activity is presented in English on the left-hand page and in Spanish on the right-hand page. This attractive little volume is entirely bilingual, and will find a welcome place in homes where the children's parents' first language is English, or Spanish. A word pronunciation guide appears on the last page.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Two lovable teddy bears serve as readers' guides to this very early vocabulary builder for ages two and up. Familiar situations and activities are depicted in the cheerful illustrations. The English word appears on the lefthand page; the Spanish word (along with its pronunciation guide) appears on the right. The pronunciation guide is geared toward native English speakers and is actually helpful. Weather shows outdoor scenes and showcases words such as lluvia/ rain, sol/ sun, niebla/ fog, nieve/ snow, etc. At Home presents interior domestic scenes and names items of furniture and fixtures such as puerta/ door, ventana/ window, silla/ chair, mesa/ table, cama/ bed, etc. Although the illustrations are definitely geared toward toddlers, the side-by-side bilingual vocabulary is an effective teaching tool for beginning readers of most ages. Other titles in this series are Los animales/ Animals, Los colores/ Colors, Los contrarios/ Opposites, La familia/ The Family, and La ropa/ Clothing. Recommended for school libraries, public libraries, and bookstores. M.O.B. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
