COLLECTION – LET’S READ! IN SPANISH & ENGLISH
Let’s Read! is a series of bilingual storybooks for children who are independent readers. Children will enjoy exploring their "new" language with these original, exciting, and varied stories. Meanwhile, kids begin to learn a new language, compare it with their own, and start out on a path toward bilingual fluency. As they read, children discover that they don’t need to learn every single new word that they encounter in the second language. As unfamiliar words appear and reappear in the story’s context, they will pick up meanings effortlessly, just as they pick up and understand new words in their own language. Let’s Read! books are available in both French/English and Spanish/English editions. The parallel text, pictures and speech bubbles provide a child-friendly bridge to reading and speaking in another language.
