I like this book because it has both the German and the English. Basically, it presents a German word (with English just below) and a sentence using the word in German (with the English below). Also, there's a cute little picture that goes with each word (in most cases). The words that don't have pictures refer to a picture page (like a clothing store) where a bunch of items (such as different articles of clothing) are labeled.
But, my son is 3.5 yrs old and i think he likes a story. Still, i try to read this book regularly and i can get him to come over to look at the animals in the pictures. It helps my review of German, too. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has rudimentary German.
This is way more than just a picture dictionary. It will really teach the language at the beginners level because it uses phrases with the pictures, not just one word. I liked it so much I ordered the Spanish version for me--the German version was to help my grandson just get an "ear" for German. I'd recommend it to anyone, especially those learning the language (including adults).
My kid picked it up and started reviewing it on her own which says volumes about the accessibility and presentation of the materials. Not only are the words defined but there is a brief sentence included which demostrates the grammatical usage of the word.
The only real shortcoming is the lack of a pronunciation key. The failure to include this important aspect of language training is the reason I gave this product review 3 stars.
Overall this is a good beginner book for identifying the basic written German translations of many common everyday items. Those looking for more advanced help in the area of speech, pronunciation and diction should definitely look elsewhere.
