Introducing Spanish/English bilingualism, Lil’ Libros encourage parents to read to their children at the earliest agefocusing on subjects they are familiar with, while making it fun and rewarding for both parent and child.
Eva Peron's legacy has inspired many around the world. Better known as Evita, her story started in a small town in Argentina and continued as she used her position as First Lady to fight for women and the working class.
This book will teach little ones opposite couplings and their first English and Spanish words, while introducing them to the life of an extraordinary woman. Your child will learn that the opposite of atras is enfrente with the help of Evita's tango and that a sunny Buenos Aires is just as beautiful as a rainy one.
