In this book, It Came from Under the Highchair – Salió de debajo de la silla para comer: A Mystery (in English & Spanish) by Karl Beckstrand and Jeremy Higginbotham, you will be on your way to learning a lot of basic words in both English and Spanish. Karl and Jeremy have turned this colorful illustrated multicultural children's book into an educational tool of humor, laughter, and mystery while learning Spanish. As Ivan sits eating in his high chair, the family never realize that there is something mysterious lurking under his chair but he does. You and your child will enjoy this story as they transition from English to the Spanish translations. Pick up a copy today and add this fun book to your child's library.
I enjoyed this book because I believe children need to learn more than one language and what a great way to do it by reading an interesting story such as this one. The way Karl and Jeremy tell the story through weaving nouns, verbs, pronouns, prepositions and illustrations into the lives of the characters helped to not only keep the education stream going but maintained the entertainment as well. Your child will enjoy every moment of this book either with you, their friends or alone - not one moment will be wasted. As with anything, learning something new takes time, so be patient. Also, it is important to understand that "Spanish prepositions don’t always translate easily into English—and vice versa." Breathe, relax, read and enjoy!
