Expert Commentary

“I love these classic stories that are offered in both English and Spanish. It’s important to me that my kids learn more than one language for their cognitive development and cultural enrichment. These are fun classics that your child will read over and over again — and now you can add the extra challenge of reading it in two languages!”
