More About the Author

Ana Lomba is changing the way people think about and interact with young children learning languages. Her Parents' Choice award winning books Play and Learn Spanish and Play and Learn French are quickly becoming favorites with parents (and grandparents) who want to nurture their kids' innate language abilities and help them develop real fluency.

Key to the success of Ana's innovative approach is her focus on the family as the ideal environment for early language learning - even her signature curriculum for language schools is built with parental involvement in mind.
Rather than sitting in front of the TV or memorizing flashcards, parents and children learn a language by playing, singing, reading, acting, and interacting with each other throughout the day.

Ana Lomba has taught preschool, elementary, and college-level Spanish courses, and held leadership positions with some of the most influential language organizations in the USA. After graduating with a law degree from Spain, her native country, Ana pursued graduate studies at Binghamton University, Princeton University, and New York University. She founded her company, Ana Lomba Early Languages LLC, in 1999. Please visit to learn more about her.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

A bilingual storybook? The better to learn Spanish with!

Now story time is an opportunity to teach Spanish to children aged 2 to 7--and you don't even have to know the language yourself! It's simple with McGraw-Hill's Easy Spanish Storybook: Little Red Riding Hood.

This book presents the classic fairy tale side-by-side in Spanish and English. The story of the little girl and the big bad wolf is vibrantly illustrated, allowing children to connect the meanings of words to pictures, reinforcing their comprehension of Spanish vocabulary.

Don't worry about pronunciation--the accompanying CD does that for you! It presents an engaging reading of Little Red Riding Hood in both English and Spanish that will entertain kids while they hear correct Spanish pronunciation. You can read along with the narration or learn along with your kids!

The audio program also includes:

  • A mini picture dictionary with key vocabulary words that can be used as an introduction to the Spanish text or as a review after "The End"
  • Everyday phrases integrated into the story
  • Helpful pronunciation basics

Teaching children Spanish has never been so enjoyable for kids--or so easy for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book and CD for Bilingual children 15 Dec 2012

I have purchased this book before, but my grandchildren have played the CD so much it was worn out, so ordered it again.

I already have a copy of "Play and Learn Spanish", which as a non-speaker myself, I did find a bit daunting. This is a gentler introduction, as the story is read quite steadily, and then the lines for each character are read separately on the CD. The book is printed in both English and Spanish and is very easy to follow, even if your grasp of Spanish is very basic. A useful tool to sit alongside other Spanish-teaching mediums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect beginner Spanish book for kids and adults!!!! 24 Mar 2008
By Malinda Ott - Published on
I can't say enough good things about Ana Lomba's materials! As a Spanish teacher to children ages 2 to 6, I love that her materials are always bilingual, so that parents are not lost when they read with their child at home. She also reads the book for you in Spanish on the CD provided (English reading is on the CD as well). The illustrations are delightful and engaging. My daughter, who is growing up biligual (English/Spanish), enjoys this book a lot. In fact, when I first bought it, she asked me to read it at least once a day, and half of the time twice a day for about a week and a half when she began speaking three times as much Spanish as she had before! I can't tell you how exciting that was! Reading is magical! If you want to increase your Spanish language gains for you and your child, read LOTS of great books like Ana's in Spanish together, at least 15-30 minutes a day! You'll be pleasantly surprised by the results!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for homes where Spanish is not spoken. 11 April 2009
By Mom of Two, NY - Published on
My daughter received this book for her sixth birthday. What a wonderful gift.

She had expressed an interest in learning Spanish and this book was a wonderful way to begin that journey. No one in our home speaks Spanish so it was very important that the book come with a CD recorded by a native speaker, that the illustrations be intriguing to a young child, and that the vocabulary progress but not too quickly and in a manner interesting to a young child. This book/CD fulfilled all those requirements and more.

My daughter loves it. And thanks to Ana Lomba's other materials, my daughter was able to read it aloud before she ever heard the CD (but the CD was good for me to check that she was pronouncing words correctly).

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent teaching tool from Ana Lomba! 2 Mar 2008
By Senora Gose - Published on
I really enjoy all of Ms. Lomba's products, and this is no different. My three to five year old class enjoys hearing this, and I recommend it to parents when they ask what they can do at home to supplement learning. I usually teach the words first (which are nicely laid out with colorful pictures on a single page) and then read the story. A lot of the words are already familiar to my students, but I think this could be a good introduction to a child as well.

We often do hands-on activities in my classes and in my curriculum, so it's nice for the student to have some down time and just listen and look at the pictures as they absorb an already familiar story. Great job on the CD too!

I am a non-Spanish speaking mother of a five year old daughter and two year old son. I want my children to be bilingual. I bought "Play and Learn Spanish" first and have purchased everything else this author has produced. All Ana Lomba's materails are A++++++++

Another fun and interactive learning tool and Another must have if you want to teach and learn Spanish.

P.S. My Children love the different voices, especially the wolf!
