    I enjoyed the illustrations and intro to words I wouldn't have thought to look up in Spanish. But I don't think this is a book I would recommend as a must have. The words aren't very useful for a beginner or even an intermediate. I don't think Im going to need the Spanish word for parapet walk anytime soon.
    If you need to look up one of these words in Spanish there's always the internet.

    Criteria:

    Scope: The purpose of this selection is to provide a visual connection to common and everyday words in both English and Spanish. The intended audience would be younger users who are bilingual or have limited proficiency in English or Spanish.
    Presents the English and Spanish terms for twelve thousand illustrated items, color-coded by twenty-two themes, including astronomy, geography, human being, the animal and plant kingdoms, science, the arts, and others.


    Accuracy: The book’s publisher, Firefly Books, is a well-known publisher. One of its noted strengths is in the area of publishing reference for children. The author Jean-Claude Corbeil is also the author of several visual dictionaries, including Merriam-Webster’s Visual Dictionary.

    Arrangement and Presentation: This resource presents the English and Spanish terms for twelve thousand illustrated items which are color-coded by twenty-two themes. Each topic is divided into subsections. Every term is connected to a detail illustration labeled for easy identification. Due to the organization of themes an index, is included in both English and Spanish, so it may be more appropriate for older elementary students who are familiar with using indexes.
    Relation to similar works: This dictionary will be a great addition to the student and children’s English dictionaries that are already present in the library’s current collection.

    Timeliness and permanence: The new edition, printed in 2009, has been thoroughly updated to include the newest and most relevant subjects, current terminology, and up-to-date images.

    Accessibility/Diversity: This selection will meet the needs of the Hispanic population whether they are proficient English speakers or not. Students will be able to increase their vocabularies in both languages with the help of the visual representations. The illustrations will help in meeting the needs of the younger and less proficient readers or English speakers with the visual connection to each term. .

    Cost: At $21.26, the cost of the book is very affordable and only one or two copies would be needed so the accumulated cost would be very little and wouldn't need updated for many years.
