In this multicultural tale of acceptance, Princess Prissypants experiences the joy of communicating with others in their native language. After traveling a great distance to visit a country called Spain, Princess Prissypants discovers that she can't understand a word the Spanish princess is speaking. Wondering why anyone would want to speak a language other than hers, Princess Prissypants asks her mother to tell everyone to stop speaking Spanish. Fortunately, the wise queen intervenes and convinces Princess Prissypants to accept Princess Maria’s offer to teach her Spanish. In learning the language, Princess Prissypants gains an understanding of Princess Maria’s culture, customs, and, most importantly, her heart, as they become fast friends who love exploring Spain together. Simple Spanish words are introduced in the rhyming verse while colorful illustrations reinforce the memory of their meaning. A pronunciation guide to help readers is included along with an EnglishSpanish vocabulary page that provides a quick reference to words used in the story and some basics such as numbers and colors.
