German Books for your Bilingual Homeschool
This year I will be using the Tobi Erstlesebuch for teaching German reading and Denken und Rechnen to supplement our math program. Last year I used ABC der Tiere: Lesen in Silben with success, but I believe the characters and stories of Tobi will appeal more to my children, who love stories about giants and fairies! Please look forward to my reviews later in the year, but in the meantime, you may preview them and the other books I am using or have used here.
In general, I will comment now on the wonderful illustrations throughout each of these books and their accompanying workbooks. The illustrations are realistic and natural with a comforting aestethic even when the theme is whimsical.
May your summer planning be a success!
