The first thing that comes to mind when describing this book, is that is convenient. Think of No Fear Shakespeare; this book is set up in dual paragraphs, for each story you have one paragraph in English and then the same one again in Spanish, which makes for a convenient way to practice a foreign language while simultaneously keeping your place in the book while your eyes flit back and forth between one language and the other. Would definitely recommend for those looking for a simple, clear-cut way of learning Spanish, and or, English. The only problem I encountered with my purchase of the kindle version was that the links for the audio download were missing. However, this problem was easily solved with a quick e-mail to the author who provided me with the proper link to the downloads, and a reassurance that tthey would be there should them in the future. free of time limitations.
I loved how i was ablw to sit down with my child and teach her both language all while having fun and expanding there mindsets. Bedtime became more fun for both me and my daughter. I enjoyed having the chance to explore a new way of quality time and learning between the two of us.
The grammar in this book is terrible and if i cannot trust the English there is no reason to think that the Spanish is written in an accurate way as well. Part of the purpose of this book for me was as a Spanish language skill builder, but I can't think of any reason to have a book that isn't grammatically correct. In any case, i can not recommend this book and would definitely recommend not getting it.
While the Spanish looks good, as far as I can tell (it's not my first language - I got this book to help me expand my vocabulary), the English is...not so nice.
New paragraphs are not begun when new characters speak, resulting in the "block paragraph of doom", and I even found a sentence where there were no spaces between the words. I cannot recommend this book to anyone who does not speak English masterfully already, or to anyone who wants beauty, quality, or clarity while reading a fairy tale.
I love the idea of starting a new language as early as possible, and being in Texas, learning Spanish is a must! It's simple enough that a child would easily learn from it, but also detailed enough to be a good lesson in language. This is a great way to introduce young ones to great fairy tales and another culture/language! It's a great tool, and I haven't seen anything like this book, so thanks for creating it!
