Library Media Connection - Allison Bernstein, Educational Materials Reviewer, Cortlandt Manor, New York

"Each book in this series has an instructional page explaining the format and basics about the mechanics of the language. The alphabet and pronunciations of the individual letters and letter combinations found within each language are also provided. Appealing two-page full-color cartoon layouts illustrate the use of the language in various situations such as School, Weather, and Home. The cartoons’ speech bubbles are filled with the foreign language phrase or word, the English translation, and phonetic pronunciation. Each volume concludes with numbers and colors. This series is straightforward, provides basic phrases and words, and because the books follow the same format, moving from one to another is easy and familiar. Websites through the publisher’s portal are not always easily navigated by young readers, even though they are on-topic. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
