It’s time for another blog hop! Again, hosted by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer (thank you so much for a fun blog hop!). How does it work? Each week, there is a question to answer (submitted by many different bloggers – I even submitted one so we will see what happens!). Once you’ve written your post and answered the question, add it to the link-up and then go hop around! Meet some new bloggers, make friends, comment and maybe even follow a few! Lots of fun!
So how about this week’s question? It comes from Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books.
Have you ever read a book in a foreign language you might be fluent in, and then read the same book in English?
Ooh, hard one. I took 4 years of Spanish in high school and, while I can understand enough to keep us out of trouble if we ever traveled to Spain, I wouldn’t consider myself fluent in it. Unfortunately, neither Crystal or I have retained enough language knowledge to read any books. So this question is going to go to Lady Quinn and Mr. Chu (the little ones, if you are new to the blog). And the book they have read is courtesy of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
You can find the English version of this book on Amazon ( I had to take a picture of our copy because I couldn’t find the bilingual one anywhere). We love all the Sassy books. They’re bright and the pictures are gorgeous! Lady Quinn and Mr. Chu love going through and picking out the pictures they like best (with this one, it was the page with all the farm animals on it and the one with the trains/cars/trucks). We also have the Let’s Count!: A First Book of Numbers, but that one isn’t bilingual.
So, in answer to the question, this is as close as any of us here at the Ginger Mom have gotten to reading a book in another language. What about you? Have you read any books in other languages?
Yep, here at the Ginger Mom, we start ’em reading young! Check out our Instagram page for more adorable pictures of Lady Quinn and her brother reading 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Friday!
