Great for reference for ages 5 & up Jul 1, 2007
This handy suitcase full of language materials is a wonderful way to get started, when you don't know how to start. It has flashcards, a parent guide, everything you'd want for a good solid introduction. I have used it as supplemental material in my own Spanish classes. It's a little advanced for most toddlers, so try Flip Flop Spanish for that age group, but for ages 5 & up, you'll be pleased, if you put a little planning into your lesson beforehand.
It is quite interactive, which is the best way for kids to learn. Being a hands-on teacher, I wish there was a little more writing - even watching someone write a word helps a child to focus on it for that much longer while he listens, uses it in a sentence, or repeats a song or phrase.
This "pack" is HIGHLY overpriced. It consists of nothing but a story book written in Spanish and English and a CD that reads the story. I am very disappointed. The "Spanish for Children" is MUCH better and costs less. I am trying to get my money back on the Berlitz.
An excellent way for parents to teach young children Spanish Feb 12, 2004
I bought this pack for my six year old son, and we really like it. It's actually not a book. It comes with a parent guide which will take you step-by-step through a complete lesson plan on how to teach your child the language (even if you don't speak it yourself); 50 flash cards of all the numbers, colors, family nounds, animals and foods plus some blank ones for your own use; a cassette with the enclosed storybook and a bunch of fun songs for the children to learn, a "Nicholas's Lost Cat" story in both English and Spanish, and a First 100 Words dictionary. It's well worth the price, and while it's certainly not a complete course by any means, it's an age-appropriate introduction to the language for any child between the ages of 3 and 12 or so. You'll need more than this pack if you want your child to achieve high-level fluency in the language, but this is the best solution for taking those first few steps. My only complaint is the fact that it comes with only one storybook; I would have gladly paid more had it come with several more storybooks, which are much more interesting and dynamic than a dictionary and flashcards.
