Reviews - What do customers think about Franklin Miente?
Good in Spanish or English! Dec 8, 2004
This was the first in the Franklin-in-Spanish series of books that I read with my daughter. My daughter loves for me to read it to her, each sentence first in Spanish, then in English.
It (as well as the other books in this series) is great for two reasons. First, they teach the life lessons that Franklin books and videos typically teach.
But second, for any person learning Spanish, they're also great for learning common vocabulary and expressions. You want to learn the kind of vocabulary and expressions that everybody will know? Look at a book written for five-year-olds!
Unfortunately, it's a bit depressing knowing that my current knowledge level is somewhat below a Latino pre-schooler. But if you can put aside your pride, this series is great for helping to learn the language.
