Everyone is ready for the long awaited trip. Dad has promised to take the family to a magical place where the kids will find all the colors of the rainbow. In this whimsical and endearing story, a Sunday trip to the "zócalo" lets Pedro and Margarita discover some of the traditions central to their cultural heritage.
Heritage Language books are great for Spanish and English readers, both at home and in the classroom. A cross between a reader and a chapter book, these adorably illustrated books have two versions of the story on opposing pages, English on the left and Spanish on the right. By having them on separate pages, kids can read in any one language without unnatural interruptions and easily figure out new vocabulary and grammar constructs by referencing the translation on the adjacent page. As an added value, a dual language CD accompanies each book, with readings at two different speeds for each language.
The books in our collection are rich in cultural elements, traditions and family values. To make them even more valuable, each one was written to facilitate the practice of a specific grammar topic. A Chocolate Brown Balloon exposes kids to phrases with "haber" and "estar" in Spanish and their equivalents in English with "there are" and "there is".
Develop a native-like accent
Each book comes with an audio CD with two readings of the story in each language: one at a natural pace and another one at a slower pace to make it easier for kids to follow along. These readings are a great aid for developing a native-like accent and getting a feel for rhythm and intonation.
Cultural awareness and strong family values
All our books revolve around the adventures and daily lives of Pedro and Margarita, their parents, grandparents and friends. With a touch of magic, each story portrays different aspects of the hispanic culture. From fiestas and piñatas to strong family ties and balloon vendors in the square, Heritage Language books promote cultural awareness and values in ways that other bilingual children's books cannot.
Hard cover editions, unbeatable value
Each one of the books in our series is hard bound and printed in brilliant colors on high quality paper. At $9.95, including the audio CD and all our web-based language resources, you'll find this to be an unbeatable value.
