A world created in eight bilingual stories that Edwards dreamed, mused, told, and wrote while a bilingual storyteller at Library of San Juan Capistrano. "The stories are first told in English and then in Spanish; they are illustrated throughout by the author so exquisitely. The pictures alone make it a pleasurable and entertaining read, but the stories themselves are delightful."

Alfabeto Crossover Alphabet

The idea behind "Alfabeto Crossover Alphabet" is that one would partner with a person speaking the second language, in this case Spanish, and repeat the sounds of their alphabet and the corresponding illustrated words. The idea is to learn the sounds of each others' language with the assistance of another native speaker using cognates.

Plans are in the works for even more languages!
