Environment Collection for Kids: Multilingual Book Series

Bilingual homeschoolers! Here's a new series you may love.

The Environment Collection for kids is a set of books that focus on introducing young children to the basic building blocks of our environment. With the simple text and illustrations, these books are perfectly geared for kids in preK - 4th grade. For example, in Air (La Tierra), children learn all about how we need air to breathe, how it makes up the atmosphere, what gases are found in it, and why it is important to keep it clean.

So far, the titles include Water/El Agua, Air/El Aire, Earth/La Tierra, and Plants/Las Plantas (affiliate links). They aren't actually bilingual books; each book is written in the target language, so if you want English, you can get that version, or you can get Spanish. They've been translated into five languages: English, French, German, Hebrew and Spanish.

The books are written by David Palatnik in partnership with Dr. Israel Felzenszwalb, Ph.D., a biologist and professor at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. The information is acurate and the illustrations are colorful and engaging for young minds.

If you are interested in learning more or want to incoporate this series into your (homeschool) science lessons, visit David's site here. As you can see, they would be a fantastic teaching tool for kids! I love the illustrations and the focused text that is delivered in brief descriptions easy for young minds to understand. Here's a peek at some of the other books...





Disclosure: I received copies of these books for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
