The popular Good Beginnings series of board books launches two new titles for 2005 in English-only and bilingual English-Spanish editions. These delightful books answer the question in their title with words selected by the editors of the American Heritage® Dictionaries for their age-appropriateness. And as in previous books, Pamela Zagarenski’s irresistible animals bring the words to life in full-color drawings.
In What Day Is It? / zQué día es? days of the week are illustrated by a charming rabbit family who engage in such activities as grocery shopping and dining out.
In engaging stories and whimsical pictures, these books introduce the basic grammar of English and Spanish to even very young children.
