K-Gr 4-This "Spanish starter pack" is clearly designed for home use, but many of the components (also available separately) would be appropriate for public library circulation. There is no one central piece, which may confuse parents on where to begin with using the kit. The book, Help Your Child with a Foreign Language, is a reprint of a 1994 title, with an updated section on "Useful Addresses." Not directly tied to the other materials in the kit, it is a more general resource to educate parents on getting their child foreign-language-ready. The other materials do integrate concepts and style. The flash cards illustrate one word per card, and include simple nouns, colors, numbers, and seasons. There are several blank cards to encourage exploring further vocabulary. The Missing Cat is an engaging bilingual story introducing many everyday words and phrases. The audiocassette provides the narration for the story on one side, with songs to complement it on the reverse side. Most tunes will be familiar to American children; others are from popular children's songs from other cultures. The music is catchy and the accents authentic and clear. Language purists will note that the word list in the back of this book does not include Spanish articles, so integral to learning this language. First 100 Spanish Words is a picture dictionary. The colorful packaging will have kid appeal. One must question the portion of a letter to parents at the beginning of The Missing Cat that states that " about the age of four, many children enjoy hearing stories for as long as 15 minutes." This statement seriously underestimates the listening ability of children. This package is a bargain for all the material that's included.-Kathy Husband, Jefferson County Public, Golden, CO
