Take a journey through the world- Escucha Means Listen by Talia Aikens-Nunez

"What a cute book! This is a fun way to teach children about sounds as well as Spanish and English terms for those sounds. The illustrations are bright and cheerful and illustrate the words perfectly." - Heidi, Goodreads


Description:

Take a journey through the world — just listening. Escucha Means Listen helps children discover sounds around them in both English and Spanish. A beautiful picture book with lyrical prose and delightful illustrations, from lawn mowing to the splish-splashing of rain puddles.
