Reviews for Colors in Spanish : Los Colores

School Library Journal Reviews 2012 November

K-Gr 2--Sharp color photographs and simple sentences teach children colors and some basic vocabulary from different languages. The titles all follow the same structure and use the same photographs for each object. Because an English book is also included, children can compare languages and translate with ease. Students can come to this set with no prior knowledge and interact with the texts with or without an adult. The versatility of this series makes it stand out; it's a strong fit for multi-lingual classrooms or communities. Since the main sentences are only in the title language for every volume, learners are asked to totally immerse themselves in the new vocabulary. An extensive dictionary with rough pronunciation is at the back of each foreign language book as is a note to parents and teachers that briefly explains how each language uses articles.
