    Beginning Spanish and French students will find much to discover in these fun DK kits. Each kit includes an book, flash cards, and an audio CD. The book really consists of three separate books, conveniently compiled into one volume. The three "books" are an Activity Book, Picture Dictionary Wordbook, and a Bilingual Dictionary. The Activity Book consists of 26 themed topics and introduces children to common phrases and basic vocabulary pertaining to everyday situations—such as greetings, school, or at a picnic. The lessons feature color photos of school-aged children (with bilingual speech bubbles), as well as colorful graphics, tips, and vocabulary games.The audio CD corresponds to each of the lessons, and students are encouraged to listen to the CD (to develop an ear for native dialogue and pronunciation) while they follow along in the book. The Picture Dictionary contains colorful photos of people, places and objects with the Spanish or French words (and English translations) written below. The Bilingual Dictionary contains translations for 2000 of the most commonly-used Spanish or French words. The flashcards consist of five sets of twelve flashcards covering food, clothes, objects, numbers and animals. The flashcards can be used to play the games in the Activity Book, or they can be used by themselves to study vocabulary words. The multisensory appeal of this kit should inspire even the most reluctant foreign language students. ~ Lisa

    "The Basics - For Beginners or Anyone Who Wants a Thorough Review." This course is a no-frills look at Spanish utilizing the conversation building-block method. Everything you need is included in this handy little pack including a Spanish-English dictionary, a coursebook, and 4 audio CD's. The coursebook is divided into 40 lessons, which are fairly short and very do-able. All the words in bold faced type are pronounced on the audio CD's so you can learn the correct pronunciation. Notes scattered generously throughout the lessons explain pronunciation, rules and other information. Most lessons include one or two quizzes for you to practice what you've learned. The quizzes are generally formatted with matching exercises where you match Spanish phrases to English phrases and fill-in-the-blank with multiple choices of Spanish words to fill in a Spanish phrase (the English version of the word is next to the blank in parentheses). Answers are easily accessible at the end of each quiz section. The included Spanish-English dictionary is comprised of over 20,000 of the most frequently used Spanish words and the audio CD's contain over 3 hours of recorded material. This course has been recently updated and changes include the addition of 18 supplemental vocabulary sections and updated references including e-mail etiquette and Internet resources. ~ Megan

      The six chapters cover categories that are common in your children’s lives: All about Me, Around the House, At School, People and Places, Through the Year (Holidays, calendar language, etc.), and Communicating (greetings, opposites, manners, etc.). Each page uses a cartoon of a young child to demonstrate the American Sign Language (ASL) signs. Directional arrows are shown as needed. An inset with each sign shows a photograph of the activity or item signed. (These pictures often show action and would be good conversation starters as well.

    This sign language book is a very complete guide to signing. While it would be hard to get every sign into a book, this covers almost every sign you would need. But it doesn't just hand you the signs, it also gives you detailed instructions and information on when to use particular signs, and other helpful explanations. For example, because sign language lacks audible intonation, you learn to watch facial expression to see if the speaker is serious, sarcastic, or scared. And because sign language contains fewer words than the English language, the deaf form sentences differently, leaving out short words such as "that", "the", and "did" that don't have meaning by themselves. After you've learned the basics, you begin with simple but important signs, like how to introduce yourself and respond to an introduction. After displaying the signs, the book gives extensive samples and activities to help you fully understand how and when to use the signs. As new signs are introduced, they are used alongside previously covered words in sample conversations and sentences until you are comfortable with them. A couple of pages are spent discussing each new group of words, both alone and in sentences. Instruction is given on keeping all the signs in the right order when signing longer sentences. After learning common signs and phrases, the chapters begin to cover signs used less frequently. You will learn pronouns, family members, places, times, feelings, days, months, question words, replies, everyday signs, jobs, objects, and tons of other words. Mixed in throughout are activities, reviews, and rules to further understanding and fluency. - Melissa

      I love it when a fun foreign language book has pronunciation help. This one uses common pronunciation guidance like: le papier [leh papp-yay], la rue [lah roo] and la cerise [lah seh-reez] rather than the more formal International Phonetic Alphabet. What this means to you is that you can introduce your young child to French without being fluent yourself. Colorful, themed pages have scenes with dotted empty spaces where you can place the stickers. Then you have a cute vocabulary book to read and practice with. There are 7 (2-pg) scenes and 4 pages of colorful stickers. 8.5” x 11”. ~Sara

    If you're looking for a fun and easy guide to the basics of American Sign Language, then you've found your book! This is a great introductory guide to many commonl signs, and the material is presented in a visual way that is easy for children to understand so they can begin signing right away. For every sign there is a labeled picture of a child acting out the sign and a detailed caption describing the motions. The signs are broken down into a variety of sections for easy learning and referencing. These sections teach students signs related to alphabet and numbers; home, family, and pets; school; days of the week; colors; feelings; favorite foods; sports and hobbies; musical instruments; transportation and travel; animals; clothing; senses; holidays and religions; doctor's office and health; nature, weather, and seasons; practical words and question words; linking words; and making sentences. The section on forming sentences is pretty brief; so once your child has some basic vocabulary down you will need to look into more advanced titles. 95 pgs, hc. – elise

    This is the most comprehensive sign language flash card set we carry! The thorough set contains 500 double-sided flashcards (3" x 4 ½"). The front of each card features a color photograph of a woman signing (with directional arrows where appropriate), while the back of each card lists the name of the sign with the signing instructions written out. Related words/signs are indexed on the back of the cards for assistance when building sentences. For example, on the card demonstrating the sign for "accept," cross-references appear for the words "agree," "work (job)," and "yes." Each card is numbered and labeled in alphabetical order for easy reference, and the top left hand corner of each card is hole-punched for attaching the cards on the included key ring (if desired). A helpful pamphlet contains general ASL tips, and the sturdy cardboard hinged-lid box provides durable storage for the cards. ~ Lisa

    This book offers signs for 29 scriptures and 3 songs. The finger alphabet and numbers are shown, and then it starts right into the verses.

The three songs are "Jesus Loves Me," "Jesus Loves the Little Children," and "Jesus Christ." A great intro to signing or supplement to any sign language program. - Melissa

    Instead of teaching single words, this book takes a different approach. After introducing the alphabet, this book goes into useful conversations so you can say more than a string of non-related words right from the get-go. The conversations are grouped into chapters. For example, the first chapter is titled, "Getting Acquainted." Then, pictures of two children illustrate a conversation. The same two children are featured throughout the book, and their conversations cover introductions, family and friends, food and health, clothes and shopping, pets, animals and colors, educations, sports, special occasions, and emergency situations. Every few pages, there are exercises to quiz your knowledge. Instead of learning words, learn how to make sentences and be able to communicate, even as a beginner. ~ Melissa

    Little learners love to mimic what they hear, so this is an opportune time to introduce a second language. How? Which one? I don’t know a second language myself. If these are your responses, this video is a perfect way to introduce the sounds of a second language to your child, but not just one language – 6 of them! Includes Spanish, French, Chinese, Italian, German and English (for the non-native speakers, of course.) Learn some commonly used vocabulary like colors, numbers, toys, clothes and more. Kids from about age 2 to 6 will enjoy the engaging & colorful animation and I liked that they are voiced by native language speakers. Approx. 37 minutes per language. ~ Sara
