William C. Harvey, M.S. - All books by this author
This brand-new Spanish vocabulary-learning book for children, ages seven through twelve, focuses on the use of verbs as it follows boys and girls through a typical day at home, at school, and at play. Taking an informal, child-friendly approach, author William Harvey places verbs in the context of activities and dialogue, in this way minimizing the use of tense endings lists, and other dreary facts kids would need to memorize. Children learn the use of action words—or verbs—easily and naturally as they live through a day’s events, waking up in the morning, having breakfast, walking along a busy street, going to school, enjoying games in the playground, returning home for dinner, and ending their day at bedtime. This title can be used alone to teach Spanish verb usage, or it can serve as a complement to a companion title, Spanish Every Day, which teaches vocabulary by focusing mainly on Spanish nouns. Cartoon-style illustrations throughout. (Ages 7-12)
