    A laugh out loud book

    I had fun reading this book. It was cute to see the way Juan's mind works (a little reminder of Amelia Bedelia. This is a book that could be read to cheer a young child, or an adult with a young heart. What I liked about this book was the mixed vocabulary in the text, and the glossary at the end of the story. This was an amusing folktale, though I do not think this is a book that is meant to teach any lessons. Juan is a boy with a unique mind and he has a unique way of thinking. I would definitely add this ti my library. --FTD

    Que viva Juan Bobo!!

    What a wonderful children's book. Actually for those of us who know Juan Bobo from our childhood, it is a joy to venture with him again. The bilingual aspect is perfect for our children and grandchildren who sometimes don't speak or read much Spanish, regardless of age. We at Mi Bohio Puerto Rican Cultural Center in El Paso will be reading it to all, adults and children alike this Saturday evening. We will also have the character Juan Bobo making an appearance and sharing the evening with the patrons. Good job Marisa. Adelante! Judy Vasquez, Director.
