I had the pleasure of reading ¡HOLA! Let’s Learn Spanish by Judy Martialay. As a bilingual educator, I am always on the lookout for quality resources that enhance children’s learning and development of Spanish.
This fun, interactive story is a great tool for elementary age children who are being exposed to the Spanish language. Throughout the story, kids will have a variety of language exposures through vocabulary, culture, and song. What I like most about this book is that there is an audio version that can be downloaded so parents and children can follow along with the story. You can hear the audio directly on the website, and it can also be downloaded as a MP3.
The cute story follows Pete the Pilot and the friends he meets as travels to Mexico. Mrs. Martialay is a language educator with many years of experience teaching foreign language, and her background is evident in the way the book is structured. It is full of meaningful activities, reinforcements, and interactive lessons to help kids make connections and absorb the language.
I look forward to using this book with my elementary Spanish students this summer for our Culture and Travel unit to Mexico!
¡HOLA! Let’s Learn Spanish is now available in print; $19.99 and Kindle for $7.99 on Amazon
