From the publisher’s catalog…
     A family favorite since it was first published in 1994, I LOVE YOU, SUN/I LOVE YOU, MOON has taught basic concepts to a generation of young children.  Now, it can be used to introduce these concepts to Spanish readers.
     Here, each child connects with what he or she sees in both Spanish and English – pointing at the sol/sun, watering a flor/flower, feeding a carrot to a conejo/bunny – all the while saying “Te amo/I love you” to each one.  Tomie’s adorable pictures warmly illustrate each activity, making it easy and fun to learn these simple Spanish and English words.  A welcome addition to every toddler’s library.

I LOVE YOU, SUN/I LOVE YOU, MOON
