It’s all about the ABC’s for my daughter these days and nothing could be more luring than a set of colorful and sturdy cards with both the English and Spanish alphabet all packed into a nifty red box that begs to be opened. Another very cool product from Bilingual Readers.
The Easy Alphabet!/¡Abecedario Fácil! is a great way for children to learn both alphabets and to enrich their vocabulary in both languages. There are 27 cards in the box and each one has a letter of the alphabet on one side and the image of something which starts with the same letter in English and Spanish on the other side. So, for example, the F has the image of a flor/flower. The P has the image of a pingüino/penguin. You get the drift.
I love that the cards are thick and have rounded corners which make them really comfortable for little fingers. The images of the objects are funky and totally original. So far, they’ve been real fun to use for both my daughter and I.
Another awesome feature is the parent guide that comes within the box and which is full of ideas for games to use the cards with kids of all ages. Here’s an example of an activity called “Letter Search: spread out all the letters on the floor, and ask your child to find the first letter of his name or any other favorite words.” This is definitely one of my daughter’s favorite game!
Finally, for those of you who are not native speakers and might need some help with pronunciation in either language, Bilingual Readers has made available a bunch of extremely helpful – and free – audio files to make your life easier.
As we said in last month’s ReadMe installment over at SpanglishBaby, Bilingual Readers’ books are not yet available in the States – although the publishers are working on changing that – but we like their products so much that we want you to know about them.
