Hola! Let's Learn Spanish, by Judy Martialay is a beautiful children's book. The book is colorful, bright and inviting. In the book, readers are introduced to characters Pete the Pilot and Panchito the Mexican jumping bean. The book is written for children ages 6-10+ who are interested in beginning to learn Spanish. In the back of the book there are several activities to do at home (or in the classroom) and a small dictionary of words that were introduced in the book (organized by chapter). I found the dictionary helpful to revisit, to practice new words. The book is a great way to introduce children to Spanish.
The story introduces young readers to Pete the Pilot, who is on his way to Mexico. While enjoying the plane ride, readers begin to learn basic Spanish. Once the plane arrives to Mexico, we meet Panchito the Mexican jumping bean and follow him on his adventures.
Martialay's book also includes a website (www.polyglotkidz.com) with an audio page - this includes an audio version of the book (which can be helpful with pronunciations). The website also includes: tips for parents, downloadable activity sheets, family friendly recipes, downloadable games, and downloadable info-sheets on the benefits of learning a second language. Martialay also has a children's book published for learning French, titled: Bonjour! Let's Learn French.
Martialay herself taught French and Spanish to elementary, middle and high school levels throughout her 30+ year teaching career. Since retirement, she has devoted time and effort to public advocacy for foreign language study with the New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers.

I highly recommend Martialay's children's book, Hola! Let's Learn Spanish for all children interested in learning a second language.
