Five Stories Written in Spanish & English. Cinco Cuentos Escrito en Espanol y Ingles.
Alvarez, Juan; Kwapil, Marie Jo
This textbook is intended as supplementary material for children who need a K-4 interest-level and K-2 skill-level reader in either English or Spanish. The basic vocabulary is common to five of the seven most widely used basic English primers. A special feature of this reader is the introduction of new words in both languages. The color coding is designed to help the bilingual child identify his native and his target language. The stories depend upon the use of short simple sentences, utilization of the present tense, and extensive use of dialogue, and focus on images and the re-entry of new vocabulary. The stories are entitled "Funny the Bunny,""Who Can Do It?""The Fat Frog,""Green Leaves, Gold Leaves," and "Paco and the Elephant." The translations are intended to be idiomatic rather than literal.
