Summary

Summary

Once kids have learned some vocabulary in a foreign language, the next step is to use the words in practical sentences. In this brightly illustrated book, children will learn more than 200 useful phrases and expressions from a young girl and her brother as they play in their neighborhood, go to school, shop and visit with their grandparents. For youngsters learning Spanish at school, or who want to practice their language skills at home, this phrase book makes a wonderful addition to their library.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4-These two attractive volumes have identical illustrations. Each book introduces the same eight-year-old girl and describes her family's daily activities as its members move from their home to the fruit and vegetable store to the corner bookstore to school and so on. A double-page spread is devoted to each locale with about a dozen sentences containing practical French or Spanish phrases sprinkled throughout the colorful scenes. The English translations are printed directly beneath them. A word list includes the vocabulary used throughout each book; however, there are no pronunciation guides. These titles require the assistance of someone who already knows the language(s), which definitely limits their usefulness.-Marilyn Long Graham, Lee County Library System, Estero, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
