Who else would like to visit fascinating places and make new friends? While we can’t always hop on an airplane to make this happen, we can always open a book. That is why I heartily recommend cracking open the pages of ¡HOLA! Let’s Learn Spanish: Visit New Places and Make New Friends.*

¡Hola! Let’s Learn Spanish by Judy Martialay is a beautifully written book that introduces children to Spanish. Kids ages 6-10 will enjoy reading the adventures of Panchito, a Mexican jumping bean, who teaches them about Mexican culture and introduces them to Spanish vocabulary.
A great feature is the audio version available online. Native speaker Maria Fernanda reads the Spanish text, so children can hear her beautiful pronunciation. Kids will also enjoy a skit, song, craft, treasure hunt, supermarket and daily expression activities.
