Esucha Means Listen Review

Escucha Means Listen
From the mowing of the lawn to the splish-splashing of rain puddles, Talia Aikens-Nuñez’s bilingual picture book Escucha Means Listen introduces toddlers and babies to the sweet sounds around them.

Take a journey through the world—just listening. Escucha Means Listen helps children discover sounds around them in English and Spanish.

Buzz. Buzz. Qué oyes? (What do you hear?)
Las abejas (The bees) circling the flowers.

Woosh. Woosh. What do you hear?
El viento (The wind) is whistling by.

Shh. Shh. Qué oyes? (What do you hear?)
Las hojas (The leaves) are dancing on the trees.

My Review of Escucha Means Listen
Esucha Means Listen by Talia Aikens-Nunez was sent to me for review. I have to admit, since it's a childrens book, I wasn't expecting much. I was wrong. Esucha Means Listen is an adorable book that teaches some basic Spanish using a cute story with absolutely beautiful illustrations by Dina Ashraf Helmi. It teaches the Spanish version of sounds such as an ambulance (la ambulancia) and bells (las campanas). The little girl drawn featured in the book is cute as can be. It's short at 17 pages, but perfect for the intended age group. My only critique would be wishing it had a pronunciation guide at the end of the book for those of us who are Spanish language illiterate. If you have little ones, I highly suggest reading them Esucha Means Listen. It's super cute.
