The book, The Firefly Spanish/English Visual Dictionary by Jean-Claude Corbeil and Ariane Archambault is an illustrated dictionary with Spanish and English words inside! You can learn either one since both English and Spanish words are listed beside the object your looking up. However you decide to use it, this is such a great way to find something new and learn about it in a different language. Plus, great for kids who have to take quizzes, tests and actually write Spanish or English on paper.

My girlfriend bought me this one. I *LOVE* it. This book will teach you all the terms you'll never learn in a Spanish class. Wouldn't it be great to learn all the terms pertaining to an airport? This book covers it with several airport-related diagrams. You'll learn terms for tarmac, ticket counters, baggage claim, etc). It includes diagrams of the body (skeletal system included), and many other terms you might need to add to your vocabulary as an advanced speaker. It's an excellent resource to ...more

AWESOME! Seriously, I tortured my poor, long-suffering mother all evening with this book. It would be nice and peaceful and then I would blurt out some random word, like the word for a worker honeybee wing in Spanish. (It's 'ala,' by the way.) The book is totally exhausting for all involved, both for the reader and the poor soul who has to listen to the reader expound their new knowledge. The breadth of words covered is amazing.
