Mis Primeras Palabras en Espanol. Step into Spanish with this exciting interactive language guide. Just look at the pictures, read the English labels, and then pull the tab to reveal the same words in Spanish. It covers topics such as my family (mi familia), the beach (la playa), the countryside (el campo), food (la comida) and the body (el cuerpo). It includes a glossary of terms, as well as notes about accents and masculine and feminine forms. This is an enjoyable introduction to the Spanish language for children who can read independently, or an easy-to-use reminder for grown-ups with pre-readers. More than 70 words and phrases are introduced, covering a number of subject areas. These include concepts familiar to any child, such as home, animals, food and the body. All the words are shown in English. Pull the tab at the bottom of each page and the Spanish translation is revealed - so 'butterfly' becomes 'una mariposa' and the complete phrase 'look at that beautiful butterfly' becomes 'mira esa bonita mariposa'. Without even noticing, youngsters will increase their understanding while having fun pulling the tabs and looking at the pictures.
