Uno, Dos, Tres, Posada! #Review

Charis loves reading and enjoys learning Spanish. Her father helped give her the desire to learn another language. Drew has his Bachelor's degree in French, Spanish, and Political Science and received his Master's degree in Spanish translation. When Drew does not want Charis to pick up on what he is saying, he speaks to me in Spanish. Charis wants to be like daddy and learn Spanish. As a result, I have gone to the library to check out books, CDs, and DVDs to help informally educate her.

With Christmas coming, I decided to check out Uno, Dos, Tres, Posada! Let's Celebrate Christmas by Virginia Knoll. Throughout the book, the author uses the format, "I say uno and you say one." Following each rhyming phrase, a Spanish word or phrase is introduced to the reader. The illustrations and context allow the reader to easily understand the Spanish word or phrase.

At the end of the book, Virginia included an author's not explaining that "A posada is a party that is held on each of the nine nights before Christmas (Navidad)." She then goes on to write about the activities that happen leading up to the posada and what you would expect to see and taste during the party.

This book is perfect for pre-school aged children. I highly recommend it, especially if you want to introduce your child to Spanish this time of year.

  1. Thanks for the review! My son is learning Spanish in preschool, and I think he's really interested in learning more.
