Around the House That Jack Built

Around the House That Jack Built
Roz Abisch ~ Boche Kaplan
Parents' Magazine Press, 1972


Busy, busy day. Four days left to get ready before the birthday party, and yesterday afternoon, we found out my son got into Spanish immersion for elementary school. Ack! By coincidence, yesterday morning I bought a copy of Oso polar, oso polar, ¿que es ese ruido? and we had our first official book reading en español here at breakfast. Now I'm regretting all the million and one books in Spanish I've seen over the years and failed to buy. I guess a part of me thought that buying them would jinx his chance of getting into the program. Seriously though, if anyone has any (good) children's books in Spanish that they'd be willing to trade for some vintage lovelies, shoot me an e-mail. I'm all about the swapping!


That said, not much time for blogging here today, so instead I'll share some images from this sweet book that follows the basic "house that Jack built" theme...

This is the house that Jack built.
This is the sun
That shines on the house that Jack built.
These are the clouds that cover the sun
That shines on the house that Jack built.


And so on and so forth. Have a great day everyone...

My kids are in a French immersion program at our local elementary school. We've loved it (though we would be even more enthusiastic if they were learning Spanish)! I'm glad that your son will get that opportunity.

You should check out the vintage Berlitz Spanish For Children series. We only have one but I'd like to find more. Ours is copyright 1959 and the pictures are lovely.
