Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ramirose I. Attebury
For non-Spanish speaking readers interested in learning more about the language, this book in the "Languages of the World" series would make a good choice. Written entirely in English the book introduces the language and culture of various Spanish-speaking populations worldwide. Each two-page spread focuses on a different aspect of the language, including countries where it is spoken, words similar to those in English, the alphabet, how to say hello and goodbye, and how to make introductions. The book also discusses family life, schooling, sports, food preferences, and clothing in various Spanish-speaking areas. A list of all Spanish words included can be found at the back of the book with their English counterparts and a pronunciation guide. Although the scope of the book prevents the author from discussing all geographic areas where Spanish is spoken, the book still provides a good overview of the language. The book would make a useful introductory resource for lessons or units on language, culture, or geography. Reviewer: Ramirose I. Attebury
