Young Reader Reaction

The very special aspect about this book is that it’s both written in English and Spanish. It is a great book for children. The author invites the reader to a vivid, energetic world, filled with children’s innocence and happiness. The illustrations are well presented with colorful cartoon characters. This ordinary family story attracts the reader even more, since this story could apply to any family. I definitely recommend this book to kids up to 3-4, especially to those children, who can both speak English and Spanish. If not, children can learn Spanish by reading this book.

Type of Book:
This is a bilingual book that tells the story in Spanish, or you can flip the book and read it in English.
Educational Themes:

This would be an excellent book for toddlers and preschoolers. You can use it to name animals in both English and Spanish. The expressive illustrations also give you a chance to talk about feelings.
