Customer service rep at language lizard was helpful in choosing appropriate books for our classroom. I have been building a lending library for the class and was looking for books in Arabic, Polish and Spanish. They had a great selection. Was even able to get a few books in Vietnamese for one of my students.
Love that they have Arabic and Russian children's books. Our Russian families were pleasantly surprised. I will be buying some Spanish books also as the books are very nice.
A wonderful bilingual board book edition of this classic lift-the-flap book. What is the perfect gift from the zoo? Look under the flap to see the animals that the zoo sends - one is too big, one is too jumpy...but the final one is perfect!read more
