Kids will laugh and learn as they take a bilingual lift-a-flap journey with some of their favorite fairy tale characters in Lift-a-Flap Language Learners: The Enchanted Forest.
Inspire kids to laugh and learn as they take a bilingual lift-a-flap journey with some of their favorite fairy tale characters. The Enchanted Forest is a book unlike other language learning books for children. It features a fun mashup of familiar fairy tales, including Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the Three Little Pigs, and Little Red Riding Hood, and intertwines them to create a new, bilingual adventure.
Hidden within each page are flaps with common English words that lift to reveal their Spanish translations. The easiest time to learn a second language is during childhood, and this engaging story makes learning vocabulary a fun experience. Parents will love this clever fairy tale lift-a-flap adventure because it introduces children to their first Spanish words in a natural way.
