Book information:

Title: Escucha Means Listen

Author Name: Talia Aidens-Nuñez

ISBN-13: 978-1-61937-590-1

Genre: Fairy Tales, Multicultural, Family, Grade School, Animals

My Review:  This is a great book for introducing children to a second language. It takes sounds that are familiar and presents the words for them in both English and Spanish. The pictures are bright and colorful, and the words on each page are minimal. The only thing that would have made it better would be a pronunciation guide for those who don't speak Spanish.I plan to share it with my five year old grandson, and am sure that he will have me reading it again and again.

**I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.**

Rating: Five stars
