I've never seen the inside though, but I think it has thematic pages with things labeled.

http://www.santillan...rio/category/8/ It's cheaper here: https://www.amazon.com/Pictodiccionario-Spanish-Santillana/dp/1581059736/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1500698562&sr=8-1&keywords=pictodiccionario

 

Oh, hold up. I finally found inside pages: https://bilingualdic...dictionary.html

Does your library system have those First 1000 Words in Spanish books? You can look through them and order a personal copy of the one ypou like the best.

I don't know if they sell this on the US Amazon site, but it might fit your needs: https://www.amazon.e...a/dp/842366807X

I think the problem with those is that they all include English in addition to the Spanish. Once your child knows English, the dual-language books really aren't very effective.

However your post remind me that I once saw a Cat-in-the-Hat one that was more wordy, I can't remember if it included English... Oops, sounds like lots of English.

I own
Revised Edition of The Usborne First Thousand Words in Spanish
The Usborne Book of Everyday Words in Spanish


Neither of these books contain any English in the main body of work. Each page spread is a scene with a picture and various items labeled ONLY in Spanish along the margin.

Both of these books have a 1-page English introduction in the front and in the back of both is a 3-column word list in the back of the book, arranged alphabetically by Spanish and formatted like this
Spanish -- Pronunciation -- English so something like
Pollo ----- poh-YOH -- chicken

But The Usborne First 100 Words in Spanish does have English in a smaller print beneath each of the Spanish words. And has the same type of word list in the back.

If the children are learning to read/ Speak Spanish from some one who can then these pages aren't going to help or harm them. The pronunciation given is Castilian Spanish, but I read speak with a different accent so I don't use those pages myself.

I was looking for something slightly older.

Thanks. My 6yo boy reads and writes in English and reads Spanish poorly. This year we are focusing on reading and writing in Spanish for both him and my 4yo girl.

Older how? An older book or a book for an older audience?

Sounds like they would both benefit from a Spanish Learning to Read book like Nacho or something similar. I have answered several questions on readers recently for ReadingMama.

What are your kids oral/conversational Spanish like? Can they understand fluently spoken Spanish? Do they speak?

They aren't monolingual but I highly recommend the following to English dominant families who are serious about Spanish Language Acquisition.

Kids Stuff Spanish
Spanish for Beginners (A. Wilkes, The new version has a CD)
Berlitz Kids Spanish: Adventures with Nicholas trilogy
Play and Learn Spanish
Berlitz Kids Spanish Picture dictionary*
Just Look n Learn Spanish Picture Dictionary*
Kids Can Press Spanish & English Phrasebook

*These are bilingual picture dictionaries that use each word in a full sentence in both languages.

I would describe them as nearly proficient? Maybe?

That reminds me of this one: https://www.amazon.c...ord diccionario

 

I don't own any of these, though. I have an old elementary student Spanish dictionary, but there are very few pictures.

Why? She's only 6. And it will be a bit of work to make sure she actually speaks Spanish, lol! Jk. I told her, and she was like, "I need to practice what I want to say!" So, you'll eventually have to let my kid talk to your kids. :D

John doesn't like to perform. It's a total thing. The neighbor comes by and they're Spanglishing it up, but some adult say's hola expecting a decent response and he just giggles.  :glare:
