Once kids have learned some vocabulary in a foreign language, the next step is to use the words in practical sentences. In this brightly illustrated book, children will learn more than 200 useful phrases and expressions from a young girl and her brother as they play in their neighborhood, go to school, shop and visit with their grandparents. For youngsters learning Spanish at school, or who want to practice their language skills at home, this phrase book makes a wonderful addition to their library.
About the authors
Linda Hendry is an award winning illustrator and author of over 60 books for children, including many Kids Can Craft books and the Pup and Hound series. She lives with her husband, twin daughters, and a fuzzy cat near Rockwood Ontario.
Linda Hendry has been drawing for as long as she can remember. Some of her earliest works can still be found on the underside of her parent’s kitchen table – the same table that she and her sister sat at for hours and hours, filling up endless stacks of doodle pads with drawings of make-believe families and their adventures. After high school (of course she doodled in her notebooks!) Linda studied visual communication at The Alberta College of Art and Design, then moved to Toronto where she was offered the opportunity to illustrate a children’s book called ‘The Queen Who Stole The Sky’. The book was a finalist for the 1986 Canada Council Illustration award, which certainly helped to get her career rolling. Over 60 books later, Linda still loves to draw but has taken time off from illustrating to explore painting with acrylics and oils or try her hand at simple print-making techniques.
