Chiton loves freshly baked bread, but the bakery in his neighborhood will soon move. A true bread lover, he has decided to bake his own bread. Through their hilarious quest to bake the perfect loaf of bread, Pedro and Margarita's grandparents show the importance of love, perseverance, study and planning.
Heritage Language books are great for Spanish and English readers, both at home and in the classroom. A cross between a reader and a chapter book, these adorably illustrated books have two versions of the story on opposing pages, English on the left and Spanish on the right. By having them on separate pages, kids can read in any one language without unnatural interruptions and easily figure out new vocabulary and grammar constructs by referencing the translation on the adjacent page. As an added value, a dual language CD accompanies each book, with readings at two different speeds for each language.
The books in our collection are rich in cultural elements, traditions and family values. To make them even more valuable, each one was written to facilitate the practice of a specific grammar topic. The Perfect Bread help kids practice preterite and imperfect tenses.
Develop a native-like accent
Each book comes with an audio CD with two readings of the story in each language: one at a natural pace and another one at a slower pace to make it easier for kids to follow along. These readings are a great aid for developing a native-like accent and getting a feel for rhythm and intonation.
Cultural awareness and strong family values
All our books revolve around the adventures and daily lives of Pedro and Margarita, their parents, grandparents and friends. With a touch of magic, each story portrays different aspects of the hispanic culture. From fiestas and piñatas to strong family ties and balloon vendors in the square, Heritage Language books promote cultural awareness and values in ways that other bilingual children's books cannot.
Hard cover editions, unbeatable value
Each one of the books in our series is hard bound and printed in brilliant colors on high quality paper. At $9.95 including the audio CD, you'll find this to be an unbeatable value.
