Description

Learning a new language through realistic color illustrations.

This is a beginning bilingual dictionary with 1,300 color illustrations and 1,600 terms in each language.

Learning a new language, like learning to read, is easier when the reader can put an image to the term or word. These two new visual dictionaries are perfect for introducing French or English to young children.

Lifelike color illustrations describe and identify items, and each is shown with the word in both English and the second language. Beside the French word, the gender appears as well.

There are 1,600 beginning terms in each language, organized in 36 themes that children experience in daily life -- at home, at play, and at daycare or school. The themes include:

  • The body
  • The weather
  • The body in motion
  • Jobs
  • Clothing
  • School
  • The meal
  • Colors and shapes
  • Familiar animals
  • Numbers and letters
  • Dinosaurs
  • Sports
  • Plants

Outstanding for its realistic illustrations and clear labels, My First French/English Visual Dictionary is stimulating and fun to use. It is a perfect introduction for young children learning French or English as a second language.

Editorial Reviews

An excellent beginner's dictionary.... The illustrations are clear and include things most young children would see every day. The vocabulary if up-to-date.... A beautiful hardcover book which will undoubtedly inspire elementary students to improve their vocabulary in their second language.

— Resource Links

Attractive and useful additions. And at this price, one may want to consider purchasing additional copies to circulate.
