More About Gladys Rosa-Mendoza & Hector Borlasca
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: My House! / Mi casa! (English and Spanish Foundations Series)?
My House Jul 20, 2007
The first thing that attracted me to this book was its bright front cover; and each page inside was no disappointment. The fun colors make this book easy to look at. Each page has a short sentence in both engish and spanish with important words pertaining to a house in bold print. The attention to detail on each and every page is amazing! Then at the end, the reader gets a chance to name the parts of the house with help from the pronunciation guide in the back. This is a very helpful book for learning English or Spanish words to use around your home.
