Bilingual Material for Children

The Ballenger Teachers Center keeps a booklist of bilingual children's books. These books are almost entirely Spanish-English books, and at the end of the list are a few additional teaching materials in the BTC that may be useful. There are also a few other children's books in other languages--these are found almost entirely in the 400's and consist of various picture dictionaries.
