A little boy learns to communicate with others in this English-Spanish bilingual board book.

I Speak Up/Yo hablo

A book about self-expression and communication/Un libro sobre la autoexpresión y la comunicación


“I love to talk with people!” announces the toddler narrator of this charming English-Spanish bilingual board book. Language is essential to communicate with others and an important avenue for self-expression, meeting needs, conversation, problem-solving, and cooperation.

“My friend and I talk about things we both like. We get along.” Through simple text and engaging, realistic illustrations, young children learn when, why, and how to speak up: to share feelings, wants, and interests; to say thank you and ask for help; and to offer kind words and feel a sense of belonging. Includes tips and information in both languages for teachers, parents, and caregivers. View more bilingual books here.
