New titles in Barron's popular series of language-learning picture storybooks teach very young children the fundamentals of a second language even as they are learning their own. On each page, a single line of amusing story text is presented in two languagesin English and either in Spanish or in French. Preschool children introduced to these books receive a very early start in learning a new language at the same time they're learning the language spoken in their households. A closing section in each book presents a guide that will help parents teach boys and girls to pronounce the words aloud in both languages. In this story, written in both English and Spanish, a little boy named Harry is sad when George, his goldfish, dies. Harry and his mom bury the fish in their yard, but when Spring arrives, Harry gets a happy surprise. Flowers are blooming on the spot where George was buried."
