“Kids will not only enjoy the story of Gracie, a dog in search of something very precious, they will enjoy learning and practicing a second language at the same time. It’s a fun way to help develop your child’s potential for foreign language fluency. And while this book is primarily written for children, monolingual adult readers will appreciate the opportunity to put together words and short phrases in a language that may not be familiar to them. Each time you read the book together, you’ll both be building language skills!”
– Tamara S. Randolph, Carolina Mountain Life Magazine
“I think that ‘Gracie: A Bilingual Adventure in the Blue Ridge Mountains’ is a wonderful way to introduce young children to different languages. I loved the audio feature. It reminded me of my record player and books that I had as a child. My daughter loved all three of the books. She had fun listening to all three of the audio versions of the book. By listening to the audio versions, she was able to catch on to how to pronounce almost all the words for each of the languages on her own. The illustrations are charming and will draw in young children. You and your children can go to the website found in the heading and read all about the real Gracie. I would recommend this book to parents and educators looking for a way to introduce a foreign language to their young child.”
