This book contains lots of games and activities that help to reinforce basic Spanish as a child is learning the language. There's a lot more text than there are pictures, so it is geared towards either an older child who learns well through reading, or else serves as a supplement for a teacher working from another book. Unlike many other Spanish instruction books, this one does not assume that the teacher is already fluent, which is nice. I am using it to teach my 3rd grader as part of our homeschool curriculum this year. So far, he seems to enjoy it. It does move through certain subjects rather quickly, so I will probably need to find some other sources for reinforcement and practice, but overall it was a good starting place for us.

This is a really great book for learning spanish. I can tell that it would be really great for kids but I think it is also good for adults who are just starting to try and learn spanish. I'm in my mid-twenties/no kids and this book seems really great to me and not only that it's cheap I got the kindle version for just over 7 dollars. I wish I had this book when I was a kid, I can tell that kids would have a lot of fun with it. If your getting it for a kid though I imagine they would probably enjoy the non-kindle version more so they can write in it. This book goes over a lot of vocabulary and grammar that I am learning in my college Spanish 101 class and because it's designed for kids it's not intimidating at all. This book is great!

This book has the same info that I got in my Spanish 1 text in college, but it presents it in a kid-friendly format. I had tried using my college text to teach my kids, but they were bored by the adult format--dialogues and nothing fun. This book has some fun. But not much. It seems to me that this book is really lacking in activities. There's no way a kid is going to learn to learn 27 parts of the body after just one workbook page that only has 5 blanks to fill in, and one suggested activity (drawing a picture and labeling the parts). This book mostly has lists of words in English and then Spanish, as well as helpful hints: "There is no English V sound in Spanish." I think it is possible to teach kids Spanish using this book even if the parent/teacher has no experience with Spanish because the helpful hints really are helpful, but because of the lack of exercises, using this book will either require supplementation of some sort, or it will require alot of memorizing lists.

Format: Paperback
The problem with this book is that it is little more than long lists of vocabulary with the occasional exercise. The extreme wordiness and lack of activities makes it inaccessible for children, but the lack of a well-organized introduction to grammar also makes it useless to adults who might like to study independently. And since there is nothing in here you couldn't get online, I can't say I recommend it even as supplementary material.

I bought this partly because of the low price tag and see it was a mistake. I'm going to have to go spend more money to find something actually engaging for my student.

There's kind of a mismatch of style and content in this book. It looks like a little kid book, but the majority of the book is long-winded explanation that no 8 year old would want to read (or even could read). The actual exercise content is relatively small. We found it not very useful for homeschool Spanish study for my 8-year old, and instead found a decent Spanish workbook for kids "Exploring Spanish".

Format: Paperback
This book would be a good resource for an older child with a good grammatical understanding of English who is trying to learn and understand Spanish (maybe a middle schooler). It uses both grammatical lessons and learning through an English to Spanish translation as methods for teaching Spanish (much like many American's are taught in older grade Spanish classes). It would also be useful for a parent learning Spanish while helping a younger child in a Spanish program. Parents could use it as a resource for explaining their own questions to how the Spanish language works while focusing on much of the vocabulary used in entry level Spanish. Highlights in the book for this type of learning are the many pronunciation keys and English explanations of Spanish grammar. However, the book is not as helpful for younger children learning through Spanish Immersion methods because of the high use of English translations as a form of Spanish understanding. The book assumes the learner already has a good understanding of English literacy. Children in immersion programs are not taught in this way (they are taught naturally through the Spanish language from the start, and would be working at the high level of vocabulary in this book by very early grades, but not be working on grammar structures until later grades, and even then, would not approach learning topics through the English language). Therefore, immersion students may be confused by the many extra steps of English translation rather than just learning through the Spanish language itself.
