Escucha Means Listen by Talia Aikens-Nuñez (Giveaway)

escuchaEscucha Means Listen by Talia Aikens-Nuñez is a charming bilingual story that introduces children to the sounds of their world. From the honking of a truck’s horn to the banging of men working and the chirping of birds, youngsters will explore the sounds around them with this beautifully illustrated book.

There is such a great need for quality bilingual books, especially in a community like ours with a children’s hospital filled with patients of all nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. Escucha Means Listen is lyrical with a repetitive prose that will make it easy to read. The stunning artwork provided by Dina Ashraf Helmi is the perfect complement to the story. With soothing colors and soft lines, people, animals and things come alive.

I see this as a great book to take outside, so you and your child could walk along and match sounds from the book to sounds you hear on a walk together. Especially in this dreadful time of isolation, teaching young people to stop and appreciate the world around them is important.

Highly recommended.

Buzz. Buzz. Qué oyes? (What do you hear?)

Las abejas (The bees) circling the flowers.

Woosh. Woosh. What do you hear?

Talia Aikens-Nuñez wanted to be a meteorologist, a politician and a lawyer. She never thought she would be an author. It was the birth of her daughter that caused her to start writing. Raising a bilingual child inspired Talia to write multicultural children’s books.

Talia’s family loves nature so much that she and her husband vowed that they will always try to live close to water. She and her family live in Connecticut with a little pond.
