More About Gladys Rosa-Mendoza
The principal author of the English/Spanish Foundations Series is Gladys Rosa-Mendoza. Gladys was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. As she grew up, she moved to different places for her father's work, including Puerto Rico, the Canal Zone (Panama), and Savannah, Georgia. From a very young age, she was exposed to English and Spanish language, and experienced the many benefits of early bilingual education.
Gladys attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and has spent her career creating award-winning books for students of all ages. She now lives in suburban Chicago with her husband and two (bilingual) children. When her children were in preschool, she found it hard to find good quality books in English and Spanish to teach her children both languages at once, and she was inspired to create the English/Spanish Foundations Series.
The series has won 3 Latino Literacy Awards, the Benjamin Franklin Award, Book and Media award, and 7 Writer's Digest Certificate of Merit Awards.
Gladys Rosa-Mendoza currently resides in Wheaton Wheaton Wheaton Whea.
Reviews - What do customers think about Big Book: Lupe Lupita, Where Are You? / Lupe Lupita, ¿dónde estás? (English and Spanish Foundations Series)?
Excellent book Sep 2, 2008
This book is fantastic if you want your child to learn both English and Spanish at an early age.
We didn't realize that "big book" really means BIG BOOK, this thing is poster sized, not a book to cuddle up in a bed with. However we read it to our granddaughter in her room at bedtime and she loves it. She is only 2 years old but is already learning many words in both languages. The book is fun to read and the child's interaction is priceless.
Perfecto! Dec 31, 2007
This book is perfect for children who are ages 2-3 years old. My granddaughter loves to talk and has no difficulty saying anything. I have noticed that she finds speaking Spanish much more fun when we read. At home her parents speak English to her; they use only certain catch-phrases in Spanish. Obviously she is more comfortable with English, but is learning and participating. I am training her to automatically switch languages when she is with me. The books in the Mendoza series put her at ease and she loves the illustrations and short sentences. The books are appropriate for small children; they are well written. The simple subject matter, such as learning how to identify 'parts of the body' in Spanish, or learning everyday 'phrases' that describe an action that a child repeats on a daily basis, keeps my granddaughter interested in the book; this is great because at the age of 2 or 3 years old the attention span is generally very short. The colorful pictures are a huge plus; they are 'eye-candy' for children.
From a teacher's perspective - Great tool for Spanish teaching Nov 5, 2007
This is great for teaching or at home. My students learn best when they are MOTIVATED and they have REPETITION. This book provides both. Great sturdy, colorful book, that I use from ages 2 up to 9 or 10 year olds. It also goes well with Flip Flop Spanish Level 1 or level 2, to help re-inforce the nouns and phrases they learn and hear in lesson 12 of workbook 1, and Lesson 10 of workbook 2.
I have seen that more advanced story-telling books, in the beginning, sometimes frustrates the younger crowd, but this one is a good choice. It's a nice addition to add to any curriculum you're using, even DVD's and CD's.
My two year old enjoys this book and it is teaching him locations in English and Spanish. Illustrations are cute, and it is more engaging than some of the books in this series which are a little boring.
Good translation Jan 9, 2007
I live in Mexico and have all the bilingual books I buy my daughter reviewed by our Spanish teacher. It is amazing how many don't make sense when translated from Spanish to English. This series of book actually used the Spanish language properly and makes sense. Very happy with Gladys Rosa Mendoza books and plan to buy every title.
