Animals Level 2
A Spanish/English Book for Children Toddlers - Pre-School
Dr. John F. Wilhite Ph. D., Kym Anderson Wilhite M. Ed.
Animals/Los animales Level 2 is a bilingual Spanish/English book for children. Level 2 is intended for toddlers to pre-schoolers. This book, Vol. 6 in the series, includes appealing color photos and illustrations of animals to capture and maintain your child's attention and interest. The words were carefully selected and meticulously crafted into sentences appropriate for the Level 2 age group. Many words are re-entered to aid comprehension and reading. Toddlers will be able to name some animals and repeat words and phrases. Pre-schoolers will be able to read the short, easy sentences.
It is suggested that only one language be read at a time. Start with the child's first or "native" language for several reading sessions, then introduce the second language. At no time should the two languages be read during the same session.
This volume should be of interest to English speakers who want to teach their child(ren) Spanish as well as Spanish speakers who wish to teach their child(ren) English. In addition, speakers of other languages will find the book useful for teaching their child(ren) both Spanish and English.
