Editorial Reviews

'A beautiful, playful, childcentric approach to language learning-and if it spawns conversations about dialects, so much the better.'-Kirkus Reviews'This interactive picture book is sure to be a young crowd-pleaser and storytime favorite.'-School Library Journal'Bilingual, colorful, inviting, absolutely adorable-and definitely child-centric-these libritos will capture and hold the attention of the littlest to the biggest kids (and adults alike-I keep coming back to them, and I'm known to be hard to please). All are highly recommended.'-De Colores: The Raza Experience in Books for Children
