In Me duele, it’s Luis’s birthday party and he shows off his new bike to his friends. ¡Ay! he cries. Mamá and Papá come rushing outside. Is Luis OK? Will the party go ahead as planned?
The story is a fabulous way of introducing the Spanish names for parts of the body and describing what hurts.
As with all Luis y Sofía stories, there’s a twist at the end. Barbara Scanes, the author, says that she used her own children (who are now in their 20s!) as role models when thinking of what Luis and Sofía would do.
Written entirely in Spanish this original, fun story uses repetitive phrases and simple sentences to embed vocabulary and language structures, making it ideal for Spanish beginners.
With engaging, full colour pictures and simple language on every page, this book can be read to, by and with children of any age.
Children with early Spanish language skills will gain confidence, and develop their language skills, when they realise they are able to read and understand a storybook in Spanish.
An audio enhanced e-storybook of this story is available exclusively as part of the Learn Spanish with Luis y Sofía 1a Parte Starter Pack.
