    This is the second book I have read in Spanish Even though it was a children s book, it was hard to read because it used a lot of tenses that I don t know yet Each page had the story in both Spanish and English, but the translation was thought for thought and not at all word for word I was able to understand most of what was written without looking at the English version, but I will be happy when I finally understand a few of the other tenses.


  7. Andrea Andrea says:

    This book was a nice story but it was a pretty long for my kids It was quite wordy and some parts could have been eliminated to make the story shorter I did like the Spanish words that were mingled with the story and there is a Spanish version of the story right with the English version.
