¡Es el momento que todos hemos estado esperando…el lanzamiento de Usborne Books & More Español! En las palabras de Selena, “Estoy muy EXCITED!” As a mama who is raising her kids to be bilingual, Spanish books are always in high demand. I love our Usborne Books & More titles but I always read them to my kids in Spanish by translating as I read. Truth be told translating on the fly isn’t the best literacy practice. Those days are gone because our Spanish books have begun to roll out and they could not get any better!
These books just launched in January and March and there is already a great selection to choose from. I ordered most of the titles just to check them out and have them on hand for booth events I had coming up. My first impression is that these books do not disappoint! They are the same great Usborne Books & More quality that we have all come to know and love but en Español. The quality of the content, illustrations and general construction of the books is phenomenal. I am not at all surprised.
I don’t have anything negative to say about these books personally. However, initial feedback from customers has started to come in through our consultant groups. Many people have expressed disappointment over the use of the vosotros in the books. Vosotros is not widely used but I can say that we have been reading these books regularly since they launched and my peques have had no problem with it at all. Some of my customers are teachers and their initial feedback to me has been that the vosotros has been a non-issue for them as well. I really think it just comes down to a matter of personal preference.
You NEED all of these books. No seriously, but they do add up quickly. Let’s chat about how I can help you get your hands on these libros fabulosos for a minimum cost!
