Review #16-- Bosley Sees the World - Spanish Written by Tim Johnson,

This is a book that is a bilingual book in English and Spanish. There are also books available in English with: French, Russian, Mandarin Chinese, German,  Italian,  and Arabic. These books  that are bilingual are great. Its always a good thing to teach kids more than one language, and books are a great way to start. I especially like that there are the same words and simple phrases, opposites, highlighted words, contextual learning, and corresponding imagery  on the page in both English and the foreign language.  I also enjoyed the colorful pictures in this book. The book is a simple story about a bear who goes on a journey to climb a mountain and realizes there is much more of the world to see. Also a great story to make a collection of stories with new words for kids to learn.  There is also a glossary in the back of the book that goes over the new words in English and the foreign language again to repeat the words just learned in the book. Hopefully there will be many more adventures from Bosley the bear.
