Oso en Bicicleta

I love the Oso books from Barefoot Books, and Oso En Bicicleta is no exception. It is a great book to use to introduce modes of transportation and geographical areas (like prairie, island, etc.).  There is rhyming throughout the book as each page Oso takes a new mode of transportation to a different place. As a word of warning there is two typos in my copy of the book ("quiero" is spelled "queiro" and "cohete" is spelled "cochete"), but I never felt that this would negate using the book with my students (many of them aren't reading yet). These typos may have been corrected since I bought the book so I am not sure if they exist in newer copies. The illustrations only add to the story and give a mom or teacher the opportunity to talk about the scenes in the target language. The book could even be used to introduce your students to animals as there are a plethora of them displayed in the pictures. 

Here is a list of the transportation and places that the book uses...

Oso is not to be missed!
