QUESTION: I am starting from scratch thats why the childrens work books interested me (they are also cheap) something like that but at a bit higher level. Amazon has so many I dont know what to get.

Answer
OK... I will try to give you a few choices here...

I've used "Spanish for Dummies" in the past a lot, it is a comprehensive book with lots of useful information to learn the language. It is, in my estimate fairly easy to understand, although it may not be for a beginner without a tutor...

My second best choice, if you have a computer, and would prefer to have the online resources (my suggestion to you is that you go this route):

http://www.123teachme.com/learn_spanish/conversational_spanish  

(never used it before, but looks simple enough for a beginner.)

http://books.google.com/books?id=6GBu0BWPHa4C&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_  

(looks also like a good place to start...you can get the printed version as well.)

http://www.christianbook.com/conversational-latin-american-spanish-lessons-cds/9  

(16 lessons in 8 CDs.. probably a good choice if you want to hear the pronunciation of words phrases and sentences)

Hope this helps,
Let me know.
