Item description for Marcos Colors: Red, Yellow, Blue (The Barker Twins) by Tomie DePaola...
Join Marcos, the adopted little brother of twins Morgie and Moffie, as he learns his colors and numbers. Moffie teaches Marcos to count from one ball to ten flowers for Mama in English, and Marcos repeats the numbers in Spanish-one ball is "uno"; two shoes are "dos." Morgie teaches Marcos colors, ending in a beautiful rainbow, and Marcos repeats them in Spanish-a red tomato is "rojo"; the blue sky is "azul." These simple, colorful board books are a fun way to explore basic concepts and learn elementary Spanish at the same time.
