Last month, I was sent copies of the three books shown above for review. I love the illustrations, the storylines are engaging, and the Spanish is very well done. The first five titles in this series are:
- DLee’s Color Hunt,
- DLee’s Outdoor Countdown,
- DLee's First Day of School,
- DLee's Nighttime Scare, and
- DLee's Bad Day
I also love that (as you can see in the image above) the books are inclusive with a multicultural cast of characters to reflect our diverse classrooms and country!
Diana Lee Santamaria is the author and publisher of this series. She's an educator with a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education who has written this book series to act as learning tools for teachers, families, and children. Diana Lee, who has been an early childhood educator for the last eight years, wanted to create books that were authentic to her students while enhancing their overall developmental abilities.
I think it is awesome that if you visit DLeesWorld.com, you'll also find free lesson plans to accompany each book.
I'm most excited to see more and more resources becoming available for bilingual families!
