Synopsis:Escucha Means Listen helps children discover the world in Spanish and English. Just listen to the world around you. Escucha Means Listen
helps children discover sounds around them in English and Spanish. Bilingual books are one of the best language learning tools you can use with children.
The sentences are short, the vocabulary is basic and the illustrations teach the words in a fun, easy to figure out way.
Activities: Take a walk and talk about the truck or the leaves and read the story with your children reinforcing the words. AT&T Natural Voices
is an excellent way to learn another language with the kidlets.
Why I love this book: It teaches Spanish in a very kid friendly way. It's a lovely book with the most vivid illustrations I have ever seen. From the ambulance to the wind blowing. You have to buy this book for your little ones. They will absolutely love it. I promise! They will love to say the words with you in Spanish. :-)
