I decided to follow Raquel 's great tip about teaching my daughter the ml vocabulary of what she is learning at school.
One of the topics on my daughter's nursery school curriculum this year is the circus. Would you have any suggestions of good books and/or other resources on the topic? Our mls are English and Spanish but don't hesitate to share the titles and author's name in your ml as I often find that some books are published in many languages and I could look it up to test my luck!
Peter Spier has a book titled Circus. It’s a sentence or two of text per page and huge detailed illustrations. My favorite book by him is Noah’s Ark. It only has text on the first page, and the rest is a wordless book with very engaging illustrations. Tons to talk about and works for any ml!
I like the book "CÓMO ABRIÓ DON NICANOR EL GRAN CIRCO VOLADOR" by Mar Benegas. She is a wonderful Spanish poet and all her books are wonderful. It might be too complicated if it is for your younger one. You can see more about the books with links to several reviews of the book here.
Azeem: Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum, and I'm so glad to be here. I came across this forum reading Adam's book Maximize Your Child's Bilingual Ability.

Azeem: I will be a father soonest, and I'm curious about nurturing my child's English and my local dialect 'Yoruba' speaking ability from the start. I live in Germany, where English is a minority language.
