As a Spanish speaker, I reviewed these books separately some time back and enjoyed each one of them. Now, they have been done as a compilation of stories that will help many kids learn Spanish in an English speaking country, or English in a Spanish speaking country. It is a fun learning experience either way. The stories are in English and Spanish on the same page and deal with real threats to the younger children in a family. Things like fear, everyday mysteries and what to eat are all touched on in these stories. They would also work the reader who wants to brush up on or even learn a bit of either language. These books would be a great addition to any bilingual school or home's library. They are colorful and age appropriate.
