Our Review


Why should learning another language be started at a young age?

Simply, the younger the learner, the better they are at mimicking new sounds and adopting pronunciation. And before children become self- conscious they can try out their newly acquired languages without fear of embarrassment.

Although as much language exposure as possible is best, even a small amount can have tremendous benefits! Today, I’m sharing a wonderful children’s picture book that will help ignite that curiosity about discovering new vocabulary and learning a foreign language that will help build your child’s vocabulary and broaden their view of the world and that book is Honey in the Woods.

Honey in the Woods written by Miso Agogo and illustrated by Kade Norman is a lively retelling of a timeless tale of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” with enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing until the very end. As I read this book, I was impressed by the vocabulary and the usage of Spanish words that are embedded throughout the story in a fun way that makes language learning fun for younger readers while at the same time helping them to develop a rich vocabulary.

Honey in The woods follows a little girl named Honey who goes out into the woods alone in search of the perfect flower for her mother and discovers a cute cottage nestled inside the woods that is home to three little bears and their parents. Through Honey’s adventurous journey into the woods, we are introduced to a new Spanish word on each page with their definitions made clear within the text and a list of words and their meanings are also included on the final page of the story. The book has pages for the kids to read Spanish words, and color the cute little characters from this book.

This book really celebrates just how neat it is to know new words and how they help you to expand your intelligence. I love the concept of bilingual books like this so that’s where much of my appreciation comes from. Black and white illustrations are absolutely fantastic and really help to support the text. Wonderful book to introduce Spanish to younger kids and a great way to incorporate more diversity in any classroom library.


Final Verdict

Gorgeous illustrations. A great retelling of a popular tale!

A must read! Such a cute concept of mixing in the Spanish words, adding coloring pages at the end to encourage creativity among kids and making learning a fun experience. Wonderful and fun story with a message of friendship at the end. Illustrations are fun as well. Sure to enchant readers of all ages however I highly recommend for first to third graders.
