|Average Rating (2 Reviews): |A must for teaching your child Spanish

This is a great book for those who don’t know any Spanish but want to teach your children Spanish. I don’t know any Spanish myself, so at first I found the Spanish difficult. (Hence I awarded 4 star instead of 5). I just used to play the CD in the background so my child can get to hear spoken Spanish (as an alternative to Spanish songs). After a while I started recognizing phrases, which I found I could then use. The aspect that makes this a great book, is that the Spanish is functional – you can use the phrases in your daily activities, which is something I have still not found in other Spanish teaching books. So it’s great to be able to say to your child “What do you want for breakfast” or “Which skirt do you like” or “Put your shoes on” in Spanish.

It's been a slow start, but finally my daughter has started to pick up and enjoy this book. I think that parents who are complete beginners might struggle with repeating and remembering the phrases. My almost 3yr old is very inquisitive and has started asking for the meaning of other objects in Spanish, so be prepared to walk with your dictionary. I'm lucky as I learnt Spanish (many moons ago) which is slowly starting to return so I can explain most things straight away. The CD has helped with reinforcing her knowledge and the songs, which I found rather obscure to begin with, she is starting to repeat and understand. I've been stunned at her quick progress, (though I do talk some Spanish with her everyday) so will definitely be persevering.
