!Te amo, te abrazo, leo contigo/Love You, Hug You, Read to You!
“There are three things I’ll always do. love you, hug you, read to you!” The simple promise of togetherness offered in this bilingual (Spanish and English) board book is enhanced by interactive prompts throughout, encouraging parents to engage with their child while reading. Studies show that asking questions, like the ones in this book, helps children learn to read faster than if they just listen to a story. Love and literacy are gifts we can give to our children every day! “Hay tres cosas que siempre haré . !amarte, abrazarte y leer contigo!”. La simple promesa de compañerismo ofrecida en este libro bilingüe (español e inglés) con páginas de cartón es realzada por preguntas interactivas en todo el libro, animando a que los padres participen con sus hijos mientras leen. Los estudios han demostrado que hacer preguntas, como las de este libro, ayuda a los niños a aprender a leer más rápido que si solo escucharan un cuento. !El amor y la alfabetización son regalos que podemos hacerles a nuestros hijos todos los días! From the Board edition.
