¡HOLA! Let’s Learn Spanish Visit New Places and Make New Friends!  Pete the Pilot takes children 6-10 on an imaginary plane trip to Mexico where they meet Panchito, the Mexican Jumping Bean. They follow his adventure while learning Spanish and being drawn into the culture. Activities follow to practice Spanish with friends and family: socializing, a treasure hunt, trip to supermarket, useful expressions, a skit, Culture Corner, song, and directions for making a traditional Mexican mask. 
¡HOLA! has received the NABE (National Association of Book Entrepreneurs) Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for winter 2017.
 The purpose of the book is to give children an enjoyable experience learning the language as well as to teach them a useful skill. The age range of children is roughly 6-10, although it should include the largest age range possible. It is especially useful for parents and children who reside in the many districts where foreign language is not offered in elementary school. My hope is that kids and their parents will be inspired to continue their study of Spanish throughout school, so that they can truly communicate to the millions of Spanish speakers throughout the world. The book can be used by older children themselves. It can be adapted for use in Foreign Language in Elementary School , FLES, programs and in Foreign Language Experience, FLEX, programs. It can be used by librarians. It would make a great gift for grandparents, relatives or anyone who has a child in his or her life and would like to give that child the beginning of a truly world class education. It can be used by parents, whether or not they speak Spanish, and their children. Be sure to download the free audio version  on the audio page so that you can download the audio as an MP3. That way you can stop, repeat, find the chapter that you want to hear again by moving the green band. Children and parents should follow along with book and audio so that they learn the best pronunciation.  Parents and children will have best results when learning the Spanish when they repeat often, and use the Spanish in everyday life situations. The book is designed to help them do that.  With the vocabulary section, they can hear again how each word or phrase is pronounced. With ¡HOLA! Let’s Learn Spanish, children engage in a variety of activities designed to accomodate a variety of learning styles, and enjoy communicating in Spanish.
The book is for children whose ages are roughly 6-10, and for their parents, whether or not they know Spanish. The purpose is to give children an early and fun experience learning Spanish.
