Bilingual Books My Bilingual Book – Senses Erdem Seçmen Illustrated by Chris Dittopoulos

Children can learn languages and explore their five sense with this educational and entertaining collection of bilingual books. Each sense is highlighted in a book featuring rhyming text and lively illustrations. For a slightly older age level than the My First Bilingual Book series, the Senses books are great for school or home, for children to read in groups or on their own.

To see, we need more than our eyes.

We need light at night to help us spy.

Để thấy, chúng ta không chỉ cần có mắt.

Chúng ta còn cần có ánh sáng vào ban đêm để có thể nhìn thấy được.
