Vividly illustrated with bright, full-color illustrations by award-winning children's artists, books in the First Picture Dictionaries series speak to kids at progressive age levels. Books combine artwork and/or photo illustrations with bold and easy-to-read word labels and definitions. Parents are encouraged to use these books as aids in teaching children the preliminaries of reading and writing at home. The books also make great teacher's helpers in classrooms, from Pre-K through early grades. With the cheerfully illustrated My First Spanish Dictionary and a little help from parents or teacher, toddlers learn to recognize words in two languages--English and Spanish. They start with word and picture association, each word serving as a picture label and presented in both languages. Words are grouped by themes, such as clothes kids wear, toys they play with, animals, foods, and many others. Questions throughout the book encourage kids to look closely and talk about what they see--in two languages! This book is useful in homes where either English or Spanish is spoken as the family's first language.
