    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

    Parents often worry about having to teach a language they don’t speak. Never fear— Songschool Spanish is here! Classical Academic Press continues its tradition of providing quality, audio-based foreign language instruction with its Spanish offering.

    The core of this program lies in the Student Book and CD Set. The audio CD contains 44 tracks set to music (you’ll recognize some familiar children’s tunes, such as “Where is Thumbkin?” and “If You’re Happy and You Know It”). Spanish and English vocabulary are intermingled in the songs, resulting in a “weave” but not an immersion. Most tunes are simple rhythms which repeat the lesson vocabulary. Lots of repetition helps the words stick in the kids’ heads. The Student Book follows the vocabulary on the CD. The black and white text has many varied activities and illustrations. The pages contain a balanced mix of text, student writing space, and images (173 pgs, pb.)

    There are 31 chapters with the suggested pacing of one chapter/lesson per week. Vocabulary covered includes: greetings, friends, family, house, manners, animals, colors, numbers, body, food, and weather. There is a support website where kids can play vocabulary games in Spanish and another site for parents to get guidance for the program.

    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

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).

    From Armenian to Zulu, this colorful book introduces students to 26 languages and cultures around the world – one for each letter of the alphabet. The book begins with a world outline map, labeled with countries and page numbers where the discussion of the country and its language can be found in the text. Next, a two-page spread presents the history of languages from a Christian perspective, explaining how the Tower of Babel story in Genesis represents the true origin of foreign languages. The rest of the book devotes a colorful, two-page spread for each of the languages. Each spread contains a map of the featured country where the language is spoken, its flag, statistics (population, life expectancy, literacy rate, number of internet users, internet code, and monetary unit), and common greetings in the language (Hello, Goodbye, Thank You, and Peace). Also included is information about the capital city, major religions, and a "Did You Know?" box with interesting facts about the language and country. The pages contain beautiful color photos of people, places, food, currency and other notable objects found in the countries. Some of the languages covered are Cherokee, German, Icelandic, Lithuanian, Mandarin, Turkish, and Xhosa. The back of the book contains statistics at a glance, flag/country naming challenges, and a list of charities that serve people in need around the world. For fun, there are stickers of facsimile passport stamps for each of the countries. By Craig Froman. 64 pgs, hc. ~ Lisa

    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
