Did you know that children who are exposed to just 50 words of a second language prior to age six develop an "ear" for the sounds of that language? "The Bilingual Book of Rhymes, Songs, Stories, and Fingerplays"offers over 450 selections, with Spanish on one page and English on the opposite. Children will be thrilled to learn new words to their favorite Spanish and English tunes. At the same time, they will build vocabulary and explore the sounds of both languages-important skills for beginning readers! Organized by theme for easy use, this invaluable collection provides a springboard for teaching a second language and for working in a bilingual classroom.
