This book is a good bilingual book. Its taking place at the circus, the illustrations connect with the text. It also rhymes! The rhyming of this book is what gives it the laughs and giggles because of the way the text is written. I think its a good selection for a multicultural book.
Behind The Book
Say Hola to Spanish at the Circus is a fun, inventive story that teaches kids Spanish vocabulary related to the circus. The illustrations are fun, and the circus is lively and visually interesting. The Spanish words are all accompanied by images that help to pair the word with the object or subject, which helps the reader learn quickly.

This book incorporates basic Spanish into a circus setting, while explaining what the words mean. This is a book that I might have a Spanish speaking student help me read to the class, and let them talk about language and culture. Otherwise, it is a fun book that any class would be interested in!
Ashley Allen
This book is great to read if your doing a unit over Mexico. The students could use this book to point out the "m" sounds and the "p" sounds. Giving the students a card with the letters "m" and "p" would be a great way to check for understanding.
Ms Threlkeld
Another fun book that introduces tons of Spanish words, many of which I never learned.
I love reading books which contain foreign language vocabulary. I love even more when the book gives you the proper pronunciation for the foreign words, which this book does at the end.
Melissa Sommer
This book talks about the different objects and animals that are at the circus using Spanish and English. This is a good book to use when you are teaching Spanish to younger children.
Becca Dunlap
This book incorporates basic Spanish into a circus setting, while explaining with illustrations what the words mean. It would be a wonderful source for a Spanish lesson, or unit on Mexico.
Ashley Fortson
This book talks about the circus, but also gives spanish words for the differnt types of animals. This would be a good book to read when teaching children Spanish.
Megan Rowland
Every child loves the circus, so why not have a book with the setting of a circus? That way, the child is engaged and wanting to learn what the book has to say.
This book has lots of Spanish words in it about the circus. It would be a good book to read if you are teaching your students how to speak Spanish.
Great way to include the ELL students into the classroom. You can have the Spanish students read the Spanish words for the classroom!
