Sophia and Alex Make Friends at School: Sofia y Alejandro hacen amigos en la escuela (Hardcover)
"Sophia and Alex Make Friends at School" is one of eleven volumes in the "Sophia and Alex" series, written by author Denise Bourgeois-Vance and illustrated by artist Damon Danielson. The story follows Sophia and Alex as they meet new friends and interact with children at their new school. The children learn that even though their peers may look and act differently, they can also find commonalities with them during play and learning time.
The 32-page illustrated book demonstrates techniques the children learn on how to communicate with other students and adults by showing respect, acceptance, and friendship toward one another. Children learn the social, emotional, and cognitive skills needed to succeed in a controlled learning environment.
Each book in the "Sophia and Alex" series draws on storylines based on common events found in the life of an early learner. Children relate to the multi-cultural characters and learn the art of acceptance and inclusion in school and home settings. Through the use of dual text, a child can simultaneously learn to read in Spanish or English while better expressing themselves in each. Studies prove that bilingual children are more apt to excel in writing and reading in subsequent grades when given the tools at an early age.
At the time of this printing, over 20 languages have been offered through Children Bilingual Books. Parents and grandparents alike cherish the opportunity to connect with their child through reading.
