Overview


It's never too soon to start teaching boys and girls a second language, and this book presents pages filled with cheerful color pictures that help teach Spanish words to English-speaking children in early grades. It presents more than 350 illustrations of familiar objects, with nine pictures on each page. Every picture is labeled with its English word, followed by its Spanish equivalent. The translated word is followed in turn by a phonetic spelling in smaller type. Words are grouped according to themes, such as Sports, The Classroom, Fruit, Vegetables, Party Time, Weather, and many others. For example, the nine illustrations on the Sports page show pictures with bilingual labels for football, table tennis, skiing, fishing, gymnastics, athletics, cycling, swimming, and basketball. Here's a fun way for younger English-speaking children to build a basic vocabulary in Spanish.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—This beginner dictionary includes more than 350 words and 35 themes. Its design is eye-catching and easy to use. The Spanish alphabet is listed inside the book cover with a guided pronunciation. Each page contains a picture of the entry along with the word in both English and Spanish, as well as the Spanish phonetic spelling. There are nine entries per page except for the numerical entry, which contains the numbers one through 20. The contents page lists the themes in both Spanish and English, from fruits and vegetables, family, storybook words, colors, and more. "Storybook" (Los Libros de Cuentos) lists words like "dragon," "fairy," and "castle." The terms are in bold typeface, and the phonetic version is presented in a smaller font along with a quaint illustration that matches the word. This is a fun and colorful picture dictionary primarily for early grade English speakers to learn Spanish and build a basic Spanish vocabulary.—Cindy Moreno, San Antonio Public Library,TX
