Spanish story to teach words for family members

In Tengo un hermano, Sofía and Marta are at the swimming pool. Marta tells Sofía that she has two brothers and a little sister. Sofía says she has a brother but she’d like a sister. What happens when Luis comes over?

The story is told via speech bubbles and is a fabulous way of introducing talking about brothers and sisters.

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.
