Introduce your child to European Spanish in the same way a Spanish child would be - by exposure to commonly used words and phrases in picture books - from an early age. An introduction to the Spanish language, a dictionary, grammar guides, question and answer games and reward certificates, all go to provide a fun and exciting new venture in home learning. Children should get a head start when they start formal Spanish lessons at school. Animals big and small are subjects close to children's hearts. The combination of bright photographs of pets and wild animals should immediately capture the young reader's interest. This book covers domestic as well as animals from all over the world. Children can explore where animals live, what they like to eat or play with.
