The Firefly Spanish & English Visual Dictionary by Igor Jourist

The book, The Firefly Spanish/English Visual Dictionary by Igor Jourist 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.
What I love most of all is the illustrations! I am hooked too these types of books and so happy to have found the Spanish and English Dictionary from Firefly! I find it to be an easier way to view the object and know what it is from visual learning as well as with the words listed. However, these types of books or great to collect and so fun to use for studying, and learning a new language on your own!
There are over 4,800 photos inside and 28,000 terms to read through. So you will basically have enough words to try to say in Spanish or look up if you are ever curious to what a note, letter or word regarding a certain object or product is telling you. No matter the use, this book can come in handy and even if you speak Spanish already, well use it to learn English! It can work both ways and you get it in the form of a hardcover book, which can last on the bookshelf  in great shape, when ever you need it.
Therefore, I feel for a children, teens, or even adults, this book is worth buying if your going to need away to understand Spanish, practice some words for a test or quiz, use it in the classroom, learn a new language or even try to understand English if you already know Spanish. It's really an excellent book!
