From the Author:

When my children were in preschool, I found it hard to find good quality books in English and Spanish. This difficulty inspired me to create the English and Spanish Foundations Series. This series started out with only a few books, and has now grown to include over 50 products.

Over the course of my career, I have developed over 600 books and other products for some of the largest publishers in the United States and have received numerous awards and accolades. My clients have included companies such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Dental Association, American Medical Association, Cook County Hospital, Kraft General Foods, Target, Boarders, Costco, Sams, Burlington Coat Factory, U.S. Post Office, World Book, American Family Insurance, Sate Farm, Reader's Digest, Heinemann Library, HarperCollins, Dorling Kindersley, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Cengage Learning, McGraw Hill, Pearson and others.

I am a graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago and have a BFA in Visual Communications. While at SAIC, I also won a scholarship to study in Europe at the Basel School of Design. I also have a master's degree in Service Design and Design Research from IIT School of Design, with an emphasis on User-centered, Research and Analysis, Service Design and Cross-Cultural Research.

I am fluent in English and Spanish and live in the Chicago area with my husband, two children and our dog Chuchi.

I am so thankful and grateful that you have chosen to buy our products. It is my hope that you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

Format: Board book
There are actual complete sentences in this book in both English and Spanish (not true of a lot of board books), which is perfect for this age and level range. This will be a great addition to Flip Flop Spanish workbook (level 2, not released yet) to help review or even introduce body parts.

I use this board book in my Spanish toddler and 4-7 year old classes, and the students love translating from Spanish to English and back again as I cover the other sentence, or if they can't read yet, guessing what Spanish words will be on that page because of the pictures. It's sturdy and well-illustrated. A great teaching resource.

My niece has lots of questions about lots of things (3 yrs.old) and it is a continuous challenge to occupy her active mind. This book was a great find for her. She has a new bilinqual friend at pre-school and is excited about learning to talk the way her friend can talk! As these kids have a growing awareness about their bodies and many other things, it is great to find books like this that teach and expand a child's world awareness. Lots of fun and highly recommended.

One of the main reasons I got this book was because of how easy it made the information to learn for kids. This book is filled with fun illustrations labeled in english and spanish. Each page also has two sentences, one in each language, which use the featured part of the body in a sentence. I would definitely recommend it!

A good way to start your child on spanish. A cute, sturdy, little book that teaches both english and spanish words and fits easily into little hands. I bought several of these as I want to start my baby on spanish.

This series of books is among the best I have found for beginning bi-lingual learning. Rather than just label body parts it offers simple phrases to initiate immersion in and use of the language. For example one page shows a picture of fingers and toes, labels them in both languages, then offers a simple phrase such as "i have ten fingers and ten toes" in both languages as well. I find the level of involvement and intellect to be perfect for our 2 1/2 year old.

Just didn't like that some of the pages clutter one to many words of discription onto one of the two children models used throughout the book. It does have an English/ Spanish sentence, then arrows names the body parts in both languages. This book to a learning eye might be intimating at what the illustration might be trying to reference to or might not even be so grasping because it just looks like too much information given at once. I usually play a game or sing a song (sometimes using the song Head&Shoulders, knees and toes), while using the book and pointing at my own body parts. That does gets some laughs...

I have purchased several Spanish books on Amazon and as always make many of my purchases based on the reviews of those who have gone before me. My daughter is trying to teach my granddaughter how to speak Spanish and she loved this book. Of course she loved sucking on the corners too but it was colorful, well planned out and joyful.
