More About Gladys Rosa-Mendoza & Lindy Burnett
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.

Excellent Book! Jan 18, 2008
I can't say enough about this series, but this book is my 21-month old's favorite. This book explains house, street, town, state, country (U.S.), continent, planet, and universe. My daughter always races to the back of the page where the planets are. She has memorized the planets and loves to show off about it! We've read it in English and Spanish. The translations are wonderful and professional.
I live here Jul 20, 2007
I loved this book! It will really help any child learn the basic words that place us in the world. The book begins right at home and then each page backs away from a home, to a state, to a country, to a continent, and so on until the pictures are showing where earth is in relation to the other planets. What a great way to show children where they live. The back even has a pronunciation guide for the main words. A perfect introduction to the Spanish and English language!
