What a wonderful way to teach unilingual children the importance of learning a new language as well as a way to help reassure bilingual children that they have a special gift that they should embrace their ability to speak in more than one language. This book did a great job in helping children that find it stressful having parents that may not speak the English language like they do feel less anxious about it. I have had friends in my own childhood where this issue caused great anxiety for them.
Having the translations side-by-side was a smart way to help my child, who only speaks english, read aloud both sentences in the two different languages. He found it very challenging, however this sparked his interest in learning more words in Spanish and is asking me more often of Spanish translations of certain words. So this was a win for me!
The storyline is so sweet and thoughtful that you can’t help but to be engaged as the story progresses. This book just brings me and my son so much joy.
