"Breaks new ground to stunning effect... The beauty of this book is that you don't even need to know the word you are looking for."-- San Francisco Chronicle (on The Firefly Spanish/English Visual Dictionary)

The Firefly Mini Spanish/English Visual Dictionary features 3,600 handsome computer-generated illustrations and 20,000 terms that show graphically what other dictionaries can only describe in words. This new edition has been thoroughly updated to include the newest and most relevant subjects, up-to-date images and current terminology.

Each key word or phrase is connected to a detailed, annotated illustration, making identification quick and accurate. Each Spanish term is also identified by gender. There are two extensive indexes, one in English and the other Spanish, making it fast and simple to find a term in either language.

  • Astronomy
  • Earth
  • Vegetable kingdom
  • Animal kingdom
  • Human being
  • Food and kitchen
  • House
  • Do-it-yourself and gardening
  • Clothing
