Mi Perrito is part of the Déjame leer series, nivel 1 (level 1). The illustrations and the repetition make the book perfect for learning and reinforcing vocabulary. In this book, the girl’s little dog licks her fingers, her toes, etc. The only verb is lamer – to lick. Mi perrito me lame (My dog licks me on my..) is repeated on each page. The body parts in the story are los dedos de las manos (fingers), los dedos del los pies (toes), la oreja (ear), la nariz (nose), el codo (elbow), la cara (face). The book is short, clear, and rhythmic – perfect for learning Spanish.
My Body/Mi cuerpo is a bilingual board book, from the English and Spanish Foundations Series. It is bright and fun, and each page has a simple sentence in English and Spanish.
For example, “I have two eyes, two ears and a nose” appears at the top of the page. “Tengo dos ojos, dos orejas and una nariz” appears at the bottom. The book also has a pronunciation guide in the back.
Both of these books are a great way to share Spanish with your child!
