"Canticos Feelings: Bilingual firsts" - a bookwrap


Bilingual is better!

From the Emmy-nominated and award-winning series, Canticos, comes Bilingual Firsts, to introduce little ones to basic concepts such as language, math and music, in English and Spanish.

Perfect format for little hands.

Every book comes in a 6" x 6" sturdy board book format so little ones can hold it themselves as they easily flip through the pages. They will love discovering new words, letters, patterns and more in not one, but two languages.

Play based learning at its best

Each title focuses on a key childhood learning concept such as numbers for learning to count, letters for basic vocabulary words, shapes and patterns, and feelings for socio-emotional learning.

More products, more fun!

Canticos offers videos, books, apps, toys and more. Check out canticosworld.com for all our bilingual products and resources to encourage your little pollito or pollita to learn two languages!

Editorial Reviews

“Beautiful illustrations with vibrant colors … make the characters pop. Parents will love these books for teaching a second language to their child when their little brains are like sponges, taking in everything like the little geniuses they are.” ― Sue Morris, Kid Lit Reviews

“Beautifully written and illustrated board books allow parents, teachers and caregivers to share words, letters, nursery rhymes and songs with their little ones that will help them increase their vocabulary in both English and Spanish. I love Canticos books for little ones. Their high quality ensures they’ll be an excellent gift to share with the young children and parents in your life.

"All in all, a cheerful bilingual introduction to familiar emotions." ― Kirkus

"Cute little colourful book about feelings. An introductory book for the little ones and how they can share their feelings with adults around them." ―Aysha Imran, Bookseller, NetGalley

"This is an adorable flap book for infants and toddlers. Each page has a feeling word in English and Spanish, on the opposite page a wonderful picture of a character, and once you lift the flap the characters' faces express the feeling. There is a short sentence or question in English and Spanish on the inside of the flap about each picture.

Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

"Feelings" is the sweetest book that little ones will adore.  It is an interactive life-the-flap book about emotions presented in two languages... English and Spanish!   I love the big bold illustrations and the vibrant bright colours of the backgrounds that make the adorable characters pop out.  They are kid-friendly and perfect for that age group. 

At the beginning of the book kids will find a "This book belongs to" page that will personalize it and bring ownership to this little gem.  The author has included translations of the featured emotions in two languages which is a wonderful way to introduce another language to your child.  This book is one of a series.  The entire collection is stellar and I understand exactly why it was nominated for an Emmy.  

The vocabulary is simple, the illustrations are spot-on.  I highly recommend this book ( and the whole series ) and encourage it to be added to your board book collection.
