Overview


Friendly teddy bears teach new words to very young boys and girls—and they do it in two languages. English and Spanish. They give toddlers an early start in learning a foreign language at the same time that they are learning new words in their own. Brightly illustrated throughout, two-page spreads show a picture with its caption in English on the left and its Spanish equivalent on the right. The last page of each book aids parents with a list of all words introduced in the book plus easy general pronunciation rules. Books in this bilingual series are also available in English and French. (Ages 2 and older)

Editorial Reviews

Criticas
PreS-Gr 2-These slim volumes are essentially mini-picture dictionaries. Each spread features cartoon drawings of an animal or mode of transportation, with the name of the item in both Spanish and English. The books appear to be geared for English speakers learning Spanish. A phonetic pronunciation appears below each Spanish word in smaller type. El transporte includes an array of basic vehicles, from boats to airplanes, while Los animales salvajes features a mixture of jungle creatures and animals from other environments, such as polar bears and kangaroos. Beaton's simple, bold, cartoon-style art will certainly appeal to a young audience. Libraries with young Spanish speakers learning English or vice versa may be interested in these books, but they might be better served by a larger, more complete, bilingual picture dictionary.
