Review: A fun, short story, Maria Had a Little Llama is a great book to read with your child whether your family speaks mostly English, mostly Spanish or both! Studies have shown that young children are able to quickly pick up languages, and simple bilingual books like this one are a great way to introduce your child to a new language. Our library has a great selection of bilingual books! You can find them in the Spanish “Libros Illustrados” section. Just look for the yellow sticker on the spine of the book that says “Libros Bilingues” !
