About the Author

Amanda Boyd was first a client of Sra. Gose's. She enrolled her two children in the fun private Spanish classes, and then sadly moved away. In the mean time, Boyd and Gose had become fast friends, inseparable in spirit. She continued her lessons with Flip Flop Spanish, and frequent phone calls. The First Bilingual Reader, based on a beautiful hermit crab named Bella, became a reality after months of conferences and thought, making sure each word used would be the most useful for the typical family, enjoying learning Spanish together. Amanda Boyd's creative and accomplished author's spirit and whimsical art work, paired with Señora Gose's translations, makes "Bella," their first joint work, a proud accomplishment for them both.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
