This book is full of monos, ratons, and osos. What’s that, you say? You don’t know what a mono is? What about a rio, some pelo, or even an árbol? No? Still no idea? You should read this libro, then. By the time you finish, you’ll be able to recognize and understand more than fifty simple Spanish words. You’ll be saying, Mas, por favor!” You may even ask your papá to buy you a gato or pato. (But not your papa. Potatoes can’t buy pets.)

Moon is La Luna: Silly Rhymes in English and Spanish based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
A--as the title declares--silly book of rhyming puns on Spanish and English homonyms. Just a fun picture book and I guarantee there will be a few Spanish words you will always remember as a result of the silliness. You are not going to learn Spanish from this book and it does not really matter if you care about learning Spanish; read the book for its fun-ness. There is pronounciation guide and a glossary at the end which you should consult first if you do not speak Spanish.
These silly rhymes mix English and Spanish and would be great for a Spanish class or even a preschool or kindergarten that's teaching some Spanish words. I think my favorite is this one: Un oso is a bear,And bears are big and hairy. At night you'd best beware,'Cause they are oh so scary!Many of the poems feature little mnemonic devices like this that would be helpful for learning the words. Fun and silly and sure to please kids and teachers alike.
