Ricitos de Oro y los tres osos, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, is a wonderful story. The pattern, the repetition and the familiar setting make it perfect learning Spanish. This bilingual version has a Spanish audio CD so that you can listen with your child. It also has a list of key Spanish vocabulary words.
The familiar story and the pictures help children understand new Spanish vocabulary. For example, Ricitos de Oro fue al dormitorio y vio una cama grande, una cama mediana y una cama pequeña. The clear illustrations make the meaning of this sentence clear – not just of the nouns dormitorio, and cama, but also the adjectives grande, mediana, and pequeña. Listening to the native-speaker Spanish on the CD, children also begin to internalize the agreement between adjectives and nouns. This book is a wonderful addition to the learning environment of a child beginning to acquire Spanish.
