New in March are these stunning First Words titles: First Words: English, First Words: French and First Words: Spanish. Kids will enjoy this simplified approach to learning an international language. There are 100 travel-relevant words in every book and each word is presented as one word per double page spread.

Every language guide comes with its own QR Code which allows children to access a free audio pronunciation guide.
