I had the monolingual (English) version of this as a kid, and my brother and I loved it nearly to death. I remember sitting for hours with my mom, pointing at things in the pictures and counting with her, then later spelling and making up little back-stories. Now I'm getting into all of that with my own son, but we have the option of doing it in English or en español. I didn't think Richard Scarry's books could get any better, but having the versión bilingüe is quite the improvement on an already amazing learning tool for the niños. This copy should consider itself forewarned: you will be loved to shreds!
I think every child should be exposed to a 2nd language young and grow up by lingual and this book provides basic vocabulary for that purpose. It does not, however, tell you how to pronounce the words, so if you want to help your child along you are going to have to take a few basic Spanish pronunciation lessons yourself.
My son loves this book! He loves to count. I'm bilingual English/Spanish and my husband is only English speaking & we take turns with night time tuckins. Cool to have a book that we can both read and he can get a different experience out of it each time.
Love all these book and the fact that it's English and Spanish is even better my son's love it
This is a wonderful book but the print quality is very poor. The colors are off. The whole book is very yellow and the blues are faded. The colors are not bright.
Great night time book to read with my toddler, I need more bilingual books like this one.
Great book in so many ways, engaging and fascinating, so much to comment on on each page.
My 3 yo loved it
