Mind Opening - A Neural Trailblazer!
on June 27, 2012
Purchased this book hoping to help my kids 'warm up' to learning Spanish. It actually made ME want to learn because the technique was so engaging and effective.
This author's approach removes the fear out of learning a new language. He obviously has a gift with language and cleverly plays with words in both Spanish and English throughout the story. The pairing of Spanish and English side by side keeps the reader grounded while also authentically experiencing the foreign language. (In my experience, at least half of the challenge of learning a new language is the feeling of bewilderment which is absent with this type of learning.) This very approachable mystery picture book draws you in and teaches you by stealth!
The beauty of this book is that it opened my mind to learning in multiple new ways through a simple yet stimulating layout. Keep 'em coming, Karl!
