¡hola! Let's Learn Spanish: Visit New Places and Make New Friends by Judy Martialay


This book gives you an easy way to try out the Spanish language.  Spanish is spoken a lot in New Mexico, and I don't know any of it.  I did know some of the words introduced here and I learned some new ones also.  If your child hasn't tasted the language yet, this is a fun way to learn!

The author graciously sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

I enjoyed the presentation.  There was a mix of English and Spanish through out.  Some words were shown as illustrations.  You learn how to count to ten, common greetings and common items around the house.  You learn about Amigos, jumping beans, frijoles and more.

The story covers traveling to Mexico, hitting a pinata, playing together and more.  In just a few pages you get very good coverage of the basic beginning of the language and how to use it.  There's a vocabulary at the back of the book, too.

Why not practice with your child and see how you do?  The more languages you know, the better off you will be.  My grandfather from Czechoslovakia managed to become a US citizen because he fought in WWI with the US and could speak eight languages.  Who knows where your knowledge might take you?
