AudioGO has partnered with Lorito Books to meet numerous requests to expand its Spanish-language audiobook offerings for children. “This collection is dedicated to building second-language skills through the use of audiobooks and quality children’s Spanish literature,” the publisher said. “We are committed to bilingualism and biculturalism and believe that early exposure will have lifelong benefits. Children are like small parrots (loritos) learning to speak by repeating the language.” Audiobook titles now being offered include Lucia Gonzalez’s The Bossy Gallito/El Gallo de Bodas, Rene Saldana Jr.’s The Case of the Pen Gone Missing/El Caso de la Pluma Perdida, James Luna’s The Runaway Piggy/El Cochinito Fugitivo, and With My Nose/Con Mi Nariz and other works by Mariana Pellegrino. Many of the titles will be in bilingual editions, while others are in Spanish only. A full list of offerings is available from AudioGO.
