The educator guide is super comprehensive. I am so impressed and have asked our K-5 cadre to include The Whynauts in their curriculum. We are eager for more!

I thought it was a smooth delivery of the content via both languages. It makes the content more inclusive for more students, and it was a positive introduction to Spanish for my daughter.
