Overview

Gives exciting new meaning to the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words

Perfect for children ages four-nine, these references employ stunning illustrations and photographs to bring to life the meanings of hundreds of essential terms. Filled with beautiful two-page spreads, McGraw-Hill's Spanish Picture Dictionary and McGraw-Hill's French Picture Dictionary each pictorially define more than 1,400 objects, people, concepts, and actions common to the everyday world of kids—from town and country, kitchen to classroom.

Following the curricula of U.S. primary-school Spanish and French programs, the dictionaries also provide key phrases for children's first conversations incorporated within illustrated minidialogues that provide models for making introductions, commenting on the weather, stating their age, talking about what they are wearing, and other basic conversational situations.

A great way to introduce Spanish and/or French, the dictionaries feature:

  • Pictorial definitions of more than 1,400 essential words and phrases
  • A blend of illustrations and photographs that will appeal to children of differing sensibilities
  • Engaging scenes and double-page spreads that capture the mind and imagination

Pictures labeled in English and Spanish are grouped in such familiar categories as "At home," "At school," "On the street," and "On vacation."

    My Toddler's Favorite Book

    While my bilingual toddler probably isn't part of the target audience for this book, she's been flipping through it since about 9 months old and now at 18 months spends some part of each day looking at the 2 page spreads of everyday life. My only criticism is that some of the terms are more commonly used in Spain than in the US, where Mexican Spanish is dominant, but this is the case with most bilingual books for kids that I've seen.<BR/><BR/>Some of the great parts of this boook: <BR/>(1) the loving, realistic, and casual family scenes (birthday party, getting ready for work and school in the shared bathroom, enjoying nature and the outdoors) that easily spark discussion<BR/>(2) a turtle hides in every spread, a bit like "Where's Waldo?"<BR/>(3) sections cover the basics (object names, colors, numbers) and more (occupations, carnival scene, what kids do during recess)
