I'm enjoying the worksheets that are coming home with James each day. We are hearing about the Spanish words that he is learning each day. Most of the time I know them. A couple of times I know he hasn't had the words right. Conejo, I know means rabbit. He insisted it was dog. I hope that sort of thing gets sorted out at school eventually. He just wouldn't believe me that I was right.

And then we get Spanish library books. I saw this one and I thought ¡No problemo!

And then it was hard! My Spanish is rusty but there were several long words that I stumbled over. YIKES!

So I know a little Spanish... how are other parents doing with these books? I don't want to mess up on pronunciations. I think I need to consult with the teacher about whether we should be attempting to read the Spanish to James, or if we should try and tell the story from the pictures.

I know it seems silly that I can't even understand a kid's book. I'm actually a little embarrassed about that.
