Spanish for Kids Set 1 is a motivating set of first reader books for children ages 3-8 who are beginning to learn Spanish. Developed with teachers, the unique Spot Color Immersion Method® combines picture cues, simple sentences, repetition, humor and context in just one line of text per page to help beginners learn basic concepts faster. Children soon proudly finish their first little Spanish book, then all 10, an accomplishment that builds confidence and motivates them to continue learning Spanish. Kids learn the correct pronunciation listening to the online audio narration by a native speaker. Set 1 features:
- 10 easy Spanish readers, each 16 pages with a simple storyline
- One line of Spanish text per page with a repetition structure
- Access to online audio recordings using the web address/URL in the books (stream online or download the MP3)
- English translation on the inside cover
- Bilingual Spanish-English vocabulary chart
The 10 readers in this box set: Family, Animals, Clothing, Colors, Face/Body, Fruit, Numbers, Shapes, Snacks, and Toys. The vocabulary choice was thoroughly reviewed by teachers/editors.
Why parents and teachers love Language Together®:
- AWARD-WINNING READERS. Kids lose interest in Spanish workbooks and flash cards with no context but learn naturally with a story. Illustrated by Geisel Honor winner Nancy Meyers.
