A teacher of 4-yr kindergarten is incorporating Spanish in her daily teaching.
She asked me if there is a name for the genre of books which use other language 
words within the context of an English language book.  That is, not a bilingual 
book that has the entire text repeated in a second language but one similar to 
Los Gatos Black on Halloween  summary: Easy to read, rhyming text about Halloween 
night incorporates Spanish words, from las brujas riding their broomsticks to los 
monstruos whose monstrous ball is interrupted by a true horror.
More to the point, even without naming this group of books, could you recommend 
some titles for our PreK-2 school library?   I told my colleague that 10,000+ 
librarians world-wide would certainly be able to help us!
