Within the pages of this book, you'll find labels for the places, things, and activities that comprise a school day.
The illustrations are great and the vocabulary (in both English and Spanish) complement the text. The book would create a nice fit in a bilingual preschool classroom.
There is no story, just a word or two per page. Luckily the illustrations offer potential to elaborate and create a story ... if you're creative.
Our preschooler loves speaking Spanish (routinely making up words), but we couldn't garner much interest in this book, even with multiple attempts.
Given that the dust jacket describes the books as "eloquently written text" we expected to read a bilingual story. This is nothing more than a well illustrated picture book for identifying objects.
This is a bilingual book that introduces school to young children.
With simple vocabulary presentations, you can introduce the essential elements of school in Spanish and English.

Borrow, at best. While this offers basic vocabulary, there are other books with stories that can engage your child more.
