This book helped my daughter to learn Spanish.
A cute story that my firefighter loving son enjoyed, but a very poor format. There were numerous times in the short 7 pages that I thought I missed something because the captioned story was not in line with the written pages.
The story is ok but to read the book is tough. The setting of the English words and the Spanish words makes it hard on the eyes. You lose focus of the story when you have to scan for the English words on the page. Unfortunately, this is all throughout the book and I can only give it 2 stars due to the above reason.
