9780764143649: Chariot Race/La carrera de carrozas: Spanish/English Edition (Let's Read! Books) (Spanish Edition)

This new addition to Barron’s popular Let’s Read! language-learning books teaches kids a second language while entertaining them with an exciting adventure story. Each Let’s Read! book is written in a bilingual format, which encourages kids who are independent readers in their own language to start learning a second language. Every two-page spread in this book presents a parallel text in Spanish and English on facing pages. This format encourages young readers to compare the words and sentences in both languages and start out on a path toward bilingual fluency. As they read, children discover that they don’t need to learn every single new word that they encounter in the new language. Instead, they soon find themselves picking up meanings effortlessly by seeing the new words in the story’s context, just as they pick up and understand new words in their own language. The parallel text, illustrations, and dialogue balloons give kids a child-friendly bridge to reading and speaking in a new language.

From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)

  • Bak must work today like any other day. His master will not let him go to the big chariot race.
  • But today is a very strange day. The parallel text will help you to find out how it changes Bak's life--in English and Spanish!
  • Have fun with new Spanish words and phrases from the story on the quiz page.

    Let's Read! is a series of bilingual storybooks for children who are independent readers. Children will enjoy exploring their "new" language with these original, exciting, and varied stories. The parallel text, pictures, and speech bubbles provide a child-friendly bridge to reading--and speaking--in another language.
