    5-0 out of 5 stars Niece and Her Mom Loves It!
    I bought this for my ten year old niece who takes Spanish in her fifth grade class. She loves it, and I know this will make all the difference in her ability to access the language and learn. Her mom said the book is really great, and I wouldn't be surprised if my three-year old nephew makes some use of it too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best ever...you can find it here!
    I am buying 3 more copies of this book for fellow teachers in my building.

    I find the book easy to use, up-to-date, and a handy reference on any spanish word.

    The picture are real life situations from computer usage, to apartment rentals, to a visit to the beauty shop..all in pictures and the Spanish work for everying associated with the picture.

    An invaluable guide for the classroom or any one who want the Spanish word for an every day item or life experience.

    I'm trying to get the district to order them for all the teachers in my school as well as all schools in the district.

    I'm sold.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Resource!
    I teach an adult ESL class and have discovered that this book is a resource I really cannot do without! In combination with the teacher's manual, it has become a valuable resource for teaching new vocabulary to my students. When I first started using it in my lessons, the students skimmed through it and were very impressed with the variety of pictures arranged by themes. After using it at home, they have ALL told me that it is a wonderful book and are so thankful they have it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars good, clear, colorful pictures for beginner or advanced
    I use with a multi-level class and everyone likes it. Pictures and definitions can spark discussions. Divided into sections which are color-coded by topic. Very full resource for the price. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Story For All ages
    Le Petit Prince is a great story for adults and kids alike. Kids can read this book and see it as only a story about a little boy from another planet who wants to find somone who understands him. Adults can read this book and see deeper meanings to what is happening. If you dig into the story you find things in this book dealing with issues we have to face. It's a great book and I would recommend it to any of my friends but I would have to tell them to get the English version. I would prefer to read the French version.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Magnifique
    I was given this book to read for a high school French class, and I'm so glad I did. (If you're by some fluke reading this, Coop, thanks so much for introducing me to "Le petit prince"!) It may be classified here as "children's" literature, but it's so much more. This is a beautiful, moving story of the little prince and his journeys through planets and on Earth. It contains some incredibly deep philosophy and will make you appreciate the simplicity and innocence of childhood... and make you want to regain that outlook on life. I know that I'm trying to see the world as a child again.

    ...Et si vous pouvez lire ce livre en français, c'est beaucoup plus beau. Le livre en anglais n'est pas mal, mais il n'y a pas l'élégance.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Open ended
    It's a strange little book that defies classification. My husband and I both read it and went away with very different interpretations. The book is part whimsy, part satire, and part philosphy. Its deceptive simplicity defies classification on greater examination.

    5-0 out of 5 stars life lessons
    I read this book a year ago with my French 4 Advanced Placement class. It is still sitting on the head of my bed, because I have read it multiple times and refer to it often. I have never been more inspired, nor more changed, by any one novel. The lessons that are meant to help children grow into admirable adults can teach us adults so much more. I looked at everything differently once I finished reading this book. I learned so many invaluable lessons that I will carry with me forever. I am absolutely sure that I will read this to my children someday. The lessons I learned, from not judging someone by what they look like to getting my priorities straight, have forever changed the way I treat people and the way I live. I believe I am more mature now because of the impact this book had on me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great in its original language
    I have read TPP in Spanish, as a child; in English and now in French. The French is 100 times better than any translation. If you have been raised in a romance language, you know that the charm and sonority of French or Spanish is completely lost, even in a good translation. If you have read TPP in translation before, read it in French. It is easy to understand and a great book for those, like me, who want to develop reading skills.
    Regarding the story, it is indisputable that TPP is a classic full of wisdom. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book and translation!
    Unlike a lot of other books that are translated into Spanish, this one doesn't lose much of the rhythm or the fun when translated. It also has the English text along with the Spanish text. My 1 1/2 year old son really enjoys this book, along with the tape recording of his Tio Raul reading it. I highly recommend it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I loved this book as a child!
    I think one of the many bonuses of the bilingual version of this book is that the text is simple and does not overpower the page. This is a great book for a great price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars easy to understand
    A wonderful book for begginers at a really cheap price. The pictues show the text really well and just in case there are some misunderstandings about the meaning of the spanish sentenes, the english version is witten right below it. I am teaching my 2-year old spanish along with improving mine, and this book is really helpful. HIghly recommended to all ages.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent starter book
    I bought this book for my son, and think i'll have to get another pretty soon, he can't let go, either i have to read it to him every night or he has to read it to me, It's getting pretty worn out.
    Some times we alternate, I read in spanish he reads in english.
    So if your looking for a billingual book for your children look no further

    5-0 out of 5 stars Opposites Attract
    This book does an excellent job of exploring the concepts of size, color and opposites using a storyline about two dogs who are very different, but also the best of friends. English text is displayed under the Spanish, making it an excellent choice for a bilingual classroom in the primary grades. ( or for English as a second language learners.) ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This was just what I hoped for
    I am so happy I chose this item for my children. Although my daughters are only 3 and 5, I wanted something to help them learn basic words and phrases. The lessons are simple with lots of reptition and cute songs. I put the CD on when they are playing and sometimes they participate but just as often not - but later, I'll hear them singing the number song.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Teriffic!
    My daughter loved this program! She is homeschooled, and listened to it on her own every day (over & over) with no nagging from me. Because of the use of songs, I feel that a child who enjoys singing will gain more from this program than a child who doesn't. (most children's language programs I've found use a lot of singing) The reviewer who disapproved of the use of witches etc. in the book may not understand that the text is very *German*... I found after living in Germany that Germans have their own ideas about what is appropriate for children. (I see no point in learning a language which has been disjointed from its culture.) My daughter was 8/9 yrs of age when she used this program (cassette version) and nothing was offensive or inappropriate. All in all, a wonderful start to your child's study of German! 5 stars for being fun, easy to use, and educational. I only wish there were a level 2!

    2-0 out of 5 stars what happened to positive reinforcement?
    i feel that this program uses vocabulary that should not be introduced to children as primary words when beginning a foreign language. it talks of ghosts, witches and other "scarey" things. i just don't feel that those words are constructive, but that other positive more essential topics could have been chosen to sing and learn about.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent and very enjoyable
    I purchased this book and cassette program for my 3 young boys who have an interest in learning German. They LOVE the program! They sing the songs regularly. It's no wonder, the tunes are catchy and the lyrics are understandable.

    I have tried many different kinds of Japanese learning programs, but this has been the most useful so far. Although I would suggest getting a CD/Book if you don't hear Japanese often, this is a great starter program. It incorporates kana into the lessons, so you will learn also how to write.

    I recommend it for all ages!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great
    I thought that this book was extraodinary! It helped me so much. The dialogue was awsome and the colorfull pages were great. I used all three books and now I speak Japanese fluently.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Learn Japanese
    This book has been a guide for me through my studies of Japanese. The pictures are very colorful and helpful. The makers of this book have made up characters through which help to make the dialogue parts more intresting and comphrensable. Also through a mixture of english and hiragana, it is easy to understand while challenging you to learn hiragana at the same time. I highly recommend this book for children between the ages of 8-14, who are trying to learn japanese.

    2-0 out of 5 stars It's not that great
    If you are looking for a book that helps you with Japanese grammar then this book is not for you. The book does not give in depth lessons and there are no english translations for sentences making it even more difficult to learn the language. The color pages is the only thing that is good about the book. I do not recommend this book for beginners, look elsewhere.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best foreign language program for YOUNG children I've seen.
    I teach preschool children French in my home and have not seen an easier method for children who do not yet read. Though designed for beginning readers it is easily adapted to non-readers. Parents who do not speak the language can learn along with their child. The program comes with an activity book children can draw, color and cut in, along with 3 cassettes. Two cassettes are the lesson plans (1-10), and the third is an instructional guide for parents.

    My only disappointment is that there is not another level after the child completes the book.

    We also have the German for Children(it comes in several languages). We spend time in the evening doing the program with our 4 year old son. I soon realised that my 2 year old knew all of the songs and was responding to questions directed at his older brother in German. They love the Super Cat cartoon.

    Note: A young child can not do the lessons without help from an adult.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointing
    I was surprised to find out that this book doesn't really come with a cassette for the kids to listen to. I talked with some customer service people and found that there may be quite a few different versions of this book, and unfortunatly not all of these versions are currently available. But other than that this book is still a pretty good french instructor for young children.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best I've seen.
    Our family has a small library of French materials for children and this is the one my children enjoy using the most. The songs are catchy and understandable (many we have are hard for me to understand what they are singing and I have had 6 years of French language). There is a good mix of activities and games that reinforce what they are learning.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent program to introduce children to French.
    This program is a wonderful balance between written and spoken French, with cute songs and games which entertain children as they learn. Most notable is that the program is presented by a native French speaker, not a speaker of French as a second language. I highly recommend this program, especially for (but not limited to) children who can read. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Boring
    This book is simple and kindof boring. The illustrations are not very realistic. My children never got interested in it. There are only a handful of pages with one animal per page. it isn't very exciting at all.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Spanish/English Series
    Raising a multilingual child is difficult particularly in our mono-lingual culture. It is all too easy to resort to the English default. As a parent I have to make an extra conscious effort to speak Spanish to my daughter and familiarize her ear with the sounds she will hopefully use one day. In this regard bi-lingual books have been essential in helping me to set aside Spanish-time. I have read this series of board books by Rebecca Emberley to my daughter since she was 3-months old and they are still among her favorites at 15 months. These books are ideal for interacting with your baby and toddler in a multilingual fashion. The illustrations are bright and colorful and the pages withstand repeated vigorous turning by little hands. Each page presents a single word in English and Spanish for added comprehension, yet ideal for short attention spans. Thank you for a wonderful series.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A good way to start out with a second language for kids
    I bought this set for my 5 year-old and 8 year-old. For the most part, they and I like it, but I must admit it takes a wee bit of getting used to. You won't be able to just put the tape on and walk away with this set, you'll need to sit with your kids and go through it together. But if you're willing to do that you'll reap some very real benefits, and your kids will too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fun Learning for the Young
    This is a great set to introduce Spanish to young kids. I have been using it with my four year old with great success. The book and cassette compliment each other well and really hold his attention. Each chapter contains several simple yet creative games to help reinforce the vocabulary and phrases being taught and ends with an on-going story in the form of a cartoon. I enjoy the program too!

    This is a great way to introduce your children (and yourself) to Spanish. The book is colorful with lots of songs and games. The cassette recordings are very clear and the instructor is warm and cheerful. My 5-year-old daughter and I absolutely loved this! The only problem is, now that we have finished it we are looking for the next step. Highly recommended. P.S. My daughter often serenades us in the morning with her Spanish songs. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Learn Italian!
    I have been searching for an easy way to teach my daughter, age 4 who has grown up only speaking english, my native Italian. I have tried various computer programs, books and tapes, and other teaching methods. All were rather boring and unhelpful, my daughter soon lost interest. This system is wonderful! The lessons are interesting and fun. They are blended wonderfully with songs and activities that keep a child's attention. I highly recommend this program. I do recommend that someone in the family practice with the child and participate with them while they listen. This is by far the best children's language packet I've seen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An engaging and informative program for learning Italian.
    My son and I enjoyed the music, activities and games provided in this learning program. The use of children's voices for the cassette was very effective. A great starting point for both children and adults alike.

    It would be great to have this program on video.

    4-0 out of 5 stars El libro El Principio
    Yo leí este libro hoy. Pienso que es un buen libro, pero es un poco facíl para yo. Tengo 10 años. Tambien había muchos dibujos bellisimo que me gusto mucho. El libro es de un hombre que tiene problemas con su motor en su avion. Esta en el Desierto Sahara, y ve a un hombre chiquito de un otro planeta. Tiene una buena final, tambien. Pienso que te gustara!

    5-0 out of 5 stars el principito
    el principito uno de esos libros que siempre debemos leer en diferentes edades, creo que es una de esas escrituras hechas para el disfrute de todos, nos hace pensar y ser más humanos cada vez que lo leemos, solo piensa que alguien todos los días esta esperando para ser domesticado. Si tienes un hijo leeselo y espera, que al cabo de los años el solo buscará el libro para leerlo.

    5-0 out of 5 stars este libro me hacía llorar
    Este libro es simultáneo el libro más maravilloso y el libro más triste. La historia del piloto que se estrella en el desierto y que se encuentra ahí con el principito, me aflige mucho.
    Aunque es un libro para ninos, gente de toda edad puede leerlo y no es aburrido. Puede ensenarnos mucho sobre la amistad. Para mí este libro fue un enriquecimiento para mi vida. Y podría leerlo decenas de miles de veces.
    Si no lees este libro pierdes algo!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ideal para chicos y grandes!!
    Esta fabúla es fácil de leer para pequeños y grandes, y con una de las mejores enseñanzas. La leí cuando tenía 8 años y ahora 20 años después sigue siendo una de mis historias favoritas. La prosa de esta historia es refrescante. El pricipito se convertirá en una persona real, que te llevará a conocer gente y lugares, pero sobre todo te enseñará una de las más importantes lecciones en la vida. Esta lectura la recomiendo a esas personas como yo que les gusta soñar y aprender. Es todo un auto-examen de personalidad. Que lo disfruten ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Some issues with some of the Spanish Words
    As a native Spanish speaker, it is very important for me that my son learn Spanish. My son loves all of the books in this series, but this one causes me a few problems. Part of the problem is the Spanish words used (which is an issue for my dialect). For example, "bananas" is translated as "las bananas" instead of "los platanos" and peas are translated as "las guisantes" instead of "los chicharros" and "broccolli" is "el brecol" instead of "el broculi" (sorry my keyboard is not set to do accents). The other issue is some of the foods selected. For example, "soup" is one of the foods, but it is hard to draw in a way that children really understand that is is soup. "Radish" is anothert choice, but since it is such an uncommon vegetable, I am not sure why she didn't use someting like a potato or a bell pepper, which are more common. So, I would recommend this book, but be prepared to change some of the words around using your computer, printer, and some glue.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Basic, brief intro to Spanish
    I wanted to introduce Spanish to my infant son so I bought this and "Mi Ropa/My Clothes" by the same author. I like this one the best. Both have very simple pictures labeled with the English and Spanish word. My son is 5 months old and seems to enjoy the pictures. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars NOT for people trying to learn Chinese
    I am trying to learn Chinese, and in seeing my toddler learn English by repeatedly looking at picturebooks, I thought a picture dictionary in Chinese would be a good way to learn every day objects in Chinese. Unfortunately, this book has the English word and the Chinese IN CHINESE CHARACTERS. NO pinyin, no bopomofo pronounciation. For the non-Chinese reader, you'll have to look up every single word. So, though this book may be good for Chinese students learning English, it is of limited usefulness to students learning Chinese. Frankly, I think this is an extremely stupid mistake by the publishers of this book. The editors should be flogged!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for Teaching EFL
    I used this book extensively while teaching college level EFL in the Peoples Republic of China. It was very helpful in identifying words like "blender"; the pictures taught a lot about how a house actually looked in the USA. Students poured over the book before and after class. Ah -- but I wish it contained the pinyin so I could have used it to learn Chinese!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good for ESL students, Bad for Chinese students
    This is a bad thing for anyone learning Chinese because IT DOESNT HAVE PINYIN. BE WARNED.

    However, ESL students will love this thing because of the pictures and the English.

    However, IT IS WORTHLESS for AMERICANS LEARNING CHINESE.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A rich visual dictionary
    It really surprised me! Great ! If I only could have the CD Rom, it would be Hiper! Because as there is no pronouncing with the ideograms, it sometimes lack the native sound. But, still is a formidable tool for chinese-english study. I would buy not only the Cd as would buy a CHINESE/English version!! Really helpfull!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best for Chinese-speaking Students
    It's an excellent dictionary for Chinese-speaking student. It's better than the book "The New Oxford Picture Dictionary". It's best for beginner. There are a lot of examples,illustrations,& pictures in this dictionary. Unfortunately, it's out of stock at Amazon.com at this moment(June'99). ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Painful to read
    I must agree with several of the other reviews. This book was translated with no thought to rhyme or flow. That's part of what makes Dr. Seuss books attractive to kids. It is a joy to read the translated version of "Green eggs & ham", but the "Cat in the hat" is positively painful.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I agree with Ms. Denise Caramagno
    The spanish version of this book is pathetic. We also have "Huevos verdes con jamon" (Green eggs with ham) in spanish and it is delighful to read it.

    At least, in this edition you still have the english version to read.

    I think this book needs a re-edition with a more accurate translation.

    1-0 out of 5 stars El gato en el sombrero/The Cat in The Hat
    When I first bought this book in Spanish (many years ago) the translation was so awful that I wrote the publishers begging them to improve future editions. I recently saw the book again and not a word has been changed-it's still a abomination.

    2-0 out of 5 stars What good is Dr. Seuss if it doesn't rhyme?
    The Spanish portion of this book doesn't rhyme. I have seen other Dr. Seuss books in Spanish that do. This one is a direct translation of the English. I think it would have been a lot more effective to stray from the English enough to make the Spanish rhyme too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm teaching my children Spanish . . .
    (...) The point was made that the translator could have done a better job had he used a little license to play with the words and make it read with an improved cadence and rhyme. However, I really wanted a literal translation! My kids speak English and are learning Spanish -- they know the English version well. It is helpful to have a direct translation because the kids can pick out the words they do know and fill in the rest because of the context --- this only works if the translation is exact/literal. The English version is also written on every page to help with that process of word-deciphering. For me, this was a very good choice. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A bold bright addition to any collection of children's books
    A enjoy looking at this book just as much as my children do. I am a mother of 4 and a preschool teacher. The colors in this book are simple and bold. It is a great resource for teaching Spanish/English and numbers in the classroom. I like the fact that the Spanish words are not the simplest choices. It challenges the Spanish learner in me. I use this book with pre-schoolers mainly 2 year olds. It is easily adaptable to the older classroom learning Spanish.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great series for early language acquisition
    I have been using this entire series with my son since he was born, and he is now 14 months. He loves the pictures and turning the pages. The books use the format of one word per page and it gives both the English and Spanish form of the word. This is a great series for early language acquisition.

    This series of books is lovely, colorful and easy to read to our baby. He loves the books -- the illustrations hold his attention. We live in a bilingual area and these will help teach him Spanish when he's older. This is the only English/Spanish board book series that I found targeting young children -- I'm so happy to have found them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent early learning tool
    I used these books in my classroom, the kids love them. Although these books are intended for a younger audience, I used them for kindergarten children learning a second language. The pictures are wonderful and they match the text clearly. There are 4 in the series. Numbers, Shapes, Colours, and Opposites.All equally good. ... Read more

    My son loves this book as a must read every morning when he wakes up and every night before he goes to bed. We love searching for the mouse and the flea and seeing the movement of the characters before they end up on the bed or off of it. The colors and the change from night to day are so smooth you almost dont notice it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Book
    Spanish is our native language and we speak Spanish at home so that our kids learn both Spanish and English. This book is a simple story with rather rich language, my daughter got 3 or 4 words she had never heard before. Besides, my daughter loves the story and the pictures; she likes to look for the mouse and the 'pulga' in all of the pages.

    5-0 out of 5 stars La Casa Adormecida
    The language is simple and repeptitive, making this a great book to teach Spanish in Elementary and Middle grades. Illustrations are great. It's also a good book for native speakers practicing reading. I use it as a check-out book for English as a Second Language students, to motivate literacy acquisition. ... Read more
