Gives exciting new meaning to the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words
Perfect for children ages four-nine, these references employ stunning illustrations and photographs to bring to life the meanings of hundreds of essential terms. Filled with beautiful two-page spreads, McGraw-Hill's Spanish Picture Dictionary and McGraw-Hill's French Picture Dictionary each pictorially define more than 1,400 objects, people, concepts, and actions common to the everyday world of kids--from town and country, kitchen to classroom.
Following the curricula of U.S. primary-school Spanish and French programs, the dictionaries also provide key phrases for children's first conversations incorporated within illustrated minidialogues that provide models for making introductions, commenting on the weather, stating their age, talking about what they are wearing, and other basic conversational situations.
A great way to introduce Spanish and/or French, the dictionaries feature:
- Pictorial definitions of more than 1,400 essential words and phrases
- A blend of illustrations and photographs that will appeal to children of differing sensibilities
- Engaging scenes and double-page spreads that capture the mind and imagination
