What I thought

This book is delightful. The story is about two brother enjoying themselves through play, exploring, and quiet time; everything they are doing is written in English, French, and Spanish on the same page. Children will love learning the same words in the three different languages. The story is tightly written and the illustrations are wonderful and enhance the text. At the back of the book, there is a Glossary, a Word Find Puzzle, and a Find the English sentences from the story that match the Spanish or French sentences. I highly recommend this book as a fun learning experience for children.
