Take a journey through the world—just listening. Escucha Means Listen helps children discover sounds around them in English and Spanish.
Buzz. Buzz. Qué oyes? (What do you hear?)
Las abejas (The bees) circling the flowers.
Woosh. Woosh. What do you hear?
El viento (The wind) is whistling by.
Shh. Shh. Qué oyes? (What do you hear?)
Las hojas (The leaves) are dancing on the trees.

Author Talia Aikens-Nuñez
Talia Aikens-Nuñez wanted to be a meteorologist, a politician and a lawyer. She never thought she would be a writer. It was the birth of her daughter that caused her to start writing. Raising a bilingual child inspired Talia to write lyrical children’s books. These ‘first experience’ books introduce Spanish to children and parents too! Talia’s family loves nature so much that she and her husband vowed that they will always try to live close to water. She, her husband and daughter live on a river in Connecticut with their daughter Isabella.

Babies and Toddlers will have fun reciting English to Spanish or Spanish to English sounds. Adults will enjoy watching and listening to their little ones learn a new language while they listening to common sounds that exist in every day life. The colorful images depict the words that are being read and recited. Kids love to repeat commercials and things they hear other people say why not encourage the sounds they hear. Looking at the images of birds, animals, trucks, and more the child in no time will recite just by looking at the images.
I would have loved to have had this book when my kids and grandkids were small. I still a couple that will definitely benefit learning and listening to this darling book.
I highly recommend this book.
I rated this book a 5 out of 5.
I received a free copy of this book from the author/Book Blast Tours for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my own opinion.
