This picture book is written in both English and Spanish. The first half of the book is written in English, then the next section is in Spanish. At the end of the book is a list of verb conjunctions in both English and Spanish. In this picture book, each page includes different verbs and verb conjunctions such as “What are you doing?” “I am eating, eating my cookies.” This book can be helpful in teaching children different verbs and grammar. I love the translations in Spanish as well, which opens the book up to both English and Spanish speakers.
