First Spanish: Mi Casa An Introduction to Commonly Used Spanish Words and Phrases Around the Home, with 500 Lively Photographs by Jeanine Beck

This is an introduction to commonly used Spanish words and phrases around the home, with 500 lively photographs. This fantastic first foreign language book has lots of bright photographs of children doing familiar activities in the kitchen, the dining room, the bedroom, the bathroom, and all the other areas around the home. Key words on every page are highlighted and translated in vocabulary panels. Tips on pronunciation and a teaching guide provide essential back-up information for adults. Question-and-answer games and reward certificates build confidence and make learning Spanish fun. Introduce children to Spanish from an early age in the same way that a Spanish child would be - by looking at commonly used terms in an attractive picture book. The pages are simple and full of impact. Each one has a basic theme or storyline, with high-frequency words and phrases that together make up a solid foundation of Spanish literacy and comprehension. A dictionary, grammar guides, interactive questions, and reward certificates, all help to provide a brilliant head start for when your child begins formal lessons at school.
