A cheerful, pictorial, and innovative introduction to the ABC's that outlines French and Spanish translations for each letter of the alphabet. This book creatively promotes the multi-language/multi-cultural society we are becoming. Great for the home or classroom. It provides us with a wonderful opportunity for young children to "play" with language - thus helping to develop a foundation for sound literacy skills!
--Gloria I. Johnson, Homewood, Illinois, MSW, Clinical Social Work, MAT (Currently a kindergarten teacher in Metro. Chicago area), Summer 2008
The book is great. The pictures are clear and colorful. This concept is easy for parents to work with their children as well as educators. The earlier a child realize the their are other cultures and other languages, the sooner they will develop a world connection. Great Job.
--Catherine Moore M.A. Educational Consultant, Head Start, Summer 2008
A wonderful introduction to foreign languages for children. Dr. Little clearly recognizes the vast opportunities resulting from multilingualism, and in the form of this book has created a tool that is both engaging and educational. As an educator, the layout of the book makes it extremely functional for individual and whole group work. Très impressionnant!
--Franco Curet, Bilingual Kindergarten Teacher
