Catherine Bruzzone / Illus. Clare Beaton
The Lucy Cat Spanish series features dual-language comic-strip books that have been developed especially for early language-learning. The simple, bilingual text is displayed in speech bubbles and captions arranged in a practical double strip: Spanish above, English below.
In Lucy Cat at the Beach / La Gatita Lucía en la Playa, Mummy takes Lucy the cat on a trip to the beach. When a shark suddenly appears, it is brave Lucy who saves all the other children from harm!
The high-quality colour illustrations, carefully-controlled bilingual text and frequent repetition will introduce young children to Spanish in a natural, relaxed way.
The book includes a short, attractive bilingual picture dictionary (with pronunciation guide) to identify new key words in the foreign language.
Lucy Cat at the Beach / La Gatita Lucía en la Playa is suitable for early readers and / or parents with little previous knowledge of Spanish wanting to read this with their child. A useful parents' guide and simple-to-use pronunciation guide are included.
