Happy Language Kids wanted a review of their book Maps/Mapas, I was very happy to help them out.
Happy Language Kids was written by author Suzy Liebermann as a learning tool to help children learn another language and a little bit about about the culture. And Ms. Liebermann really did do a wonderful job making learning fun.
Each book corresponds with extra learning tools on the Happy Language Kids website:
That way if you or your child doesn't know Spanish, then your child can hear the words pronounced, and your child can repeat the words back. There is also a replay button that allows you to replay the word or phrase over and over until you get it right.
I love this book because it could be a learning tool for children who speak English to learn Spanish, or Spanish speaking children to learn English.
