My First 100 Words in Spanish &
The Usborne Internet-Linked First Thousand Words in Spanish

Thanks to my children’s wonderful Spanish teacher (getting them excited about learning another language), our kids were thrilled when we found these books at the library this weekend. On the car ride home, I heard Spanish the entire way as they tried to read all of the words. I need to add these to our home library!

The first level book, My First 100 Words in Spanish is organized into categories with a main picture and the words related to it in English and Spanish under the picture. For example, “My family” is the first page with an illustration of a family birthday party and under it, “la abuela/ grandma, el abuelo/ grandpa, la hermana/sister, el hermano/brother and other members are listed. I like the organization, simplicity and clarity of this guide.

The next level, First Thousand Words in Spanish is organized into categories too with only the Spanish label under the picture. The great part about this book is that there’s an internet-linked pronunciation guide to help readers!

Here’s a sample of what’s inside these Usborne Books:

U nique illustrations and clear Spanish labels

: el pez/fish, la concha/shell, el Castillo de arena/sandcastle

You never outgrow these books until you master all the words; then you can share it with another child or even adult trying to learn Spanish!
