Let's Be Friends / Seamos Amigos

Hi! ¡Hola! A friendship story in English and Spanish! ¡Un cuento de amistad en inglés y español!

 

Hi. / Hola.
My name is Joe. / Mi nombre es José.
Let's paint. / Pintemos.

 

Two boys, an English speaker, and a Spanish speaker meet at school. They paint together and learn about colors. In the end, they declare, Let's be friends. / Seamos amigos.

 

Perfect for preschoolers, kindergarteners, and first and second graders who are learning to speak or read English and Spanish. A delightful reading experience for bilingual families.

Rene Colato Lainez, a teacher in a bilingual kindergarten classroom, has crafted an ingenious story that authentically and naturally uses conversation to introduce children to English and Spanish. The fun friendship story engages children, while simple words, short sentences, and a glossary reinforce learning.

 

Nomar Perez, illustrator of best-selling children's books as well as greeting cards, has a bright, bold, colorful, kid-pleasing style that invites readers to befriend the characters in this book.
