Spanish-English Picture Dictionary

Gr 2—4—This beginner dictionary includes more than 350 words and 35 themes. Its design is eye-catching and easy to use. The Spanish alphabet is listed inside the book cover with a guided pronunciation. Each page contains a picture of the entry along with the word in both English and Spanish, as well as the Spanish phonetic spelling. There are nine entries per page except for the numerical entry, which contains the numbers one through 20. The contents page lists the themes in both Spanish and English, from fruits and vegetables, family, storybook words, colors, and more. "Storybook" (Los Libros de Cuentos) lists words like "dragon," "fairy," and "castle." The terms are in bold typeface, and the phonetic version is presented in a smaller font along with a quaint illustration that matches the word. This is a fun and colorful picture dictionary primarily for early grade English speakers to learn Spanish and build a basic Spanish vocabulary.—Cindy Moreno, San Antonio Public Library,TX
