Whether your child is learning English or Italian, Oxford First
Italian Words gives your child a head start in learning another
language by taking a picture-book journey through a day, with
familiar settings, everyday things, and cute little dinosaurs.
There is a bird's eye view of getting ready for school in the
morning, the journey to school, inside the classroom, a birthday
party, and even a trip to the seaside. As a first picture word
book, this is perfect for children and their language teacher, or
native speaker, to share together picking out the familiar items,
playing the matching game, recognizing numbers, shapes and time
words. It is ideal for supporting the language skills children are
learning in school, language clubs, and for those learning English
as a 2nd language. Over 400 Italian words and their English
translations are given next to their illustrations, on every page.
There is also an expertly-levelled supplementary section at the
back - a picture/word matching game, counting the ladybirds up to
twenty, shapes, opposites, weather, time, and a comprehensive
index. The David Melling (The Kiss that Missed, Fidget and Quilly)
illustrations make this an adorable first bilingual word book.
