With a focus on animals, Mis Amigos, Los Animales teaches children the names of a variety of animals in Spanish. The use of bright, colorful illustrations simplifies understanding of the animal names. For example, coala means koala and chimpancí means chimpanzee. The combination of illustrations (which replace the English translations) and Spanish words helps children learn more quickly. With different colors and illustrations of many different animal homes desert, rain forest, and farm children will not only learn animals and their homes, but also a new language!
