Overview

¡Fantastico! What a treat: Gallop! in Spanish. For the millions of Hispanic children in the United States (Spanish is the primary language at home for 34 million Americans), and for the millions more children whose parents would like them to learn Spanish as a second language, comes the #1 New York Times bestseller, translated as ¡Al Galope!

With ¡Al Galope!, Gallop! joins other classic children's authors and books such as Dr. Seuss (Huevos verdes con jamón), Maurice Sendak (Donde viven los monstruos), Margaret Wise Brown (Buenas noches, luna), H.A. Rey (Jorge el Curioso), and Judith Viorst (Alexander y el día terrible, horrible, espantoso, horroroso). ¡Al Galope! captures the pure, universal visual fun of watching animals come to life, with the most energetic, sing-song text:

¿Puedes galopar como un caballo? ¡Cloc-cloc-cloc!¿Puedes correr como un perro? ¡Guau-guau-guau!

Whether they speak Spanish fluently or are wanting to learn it, kids will love hearing and repeating the words as the animals swim, fly, leap, swing, gallop, and flutter across the page.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mandy Cruz
This book is the Spanish counterpart to Gallop. It, too, uses scanimation illustrations. Scanimation images move when readers turn the page truly animating the story. Images in this book include a galloping horse, a strutting rooster, running dog, jumping cat, shining star, and flying eagle, among others. The fact that images move with the turn of the page ensures that the reader will continue turning the pages. This book is a perfect example of illustrations making the book. Reading about swinging monkeys is one thing but seeing them actually swing from vine to vine is captivating. Children will reach for this little book over and over again and quickly connect the imagery with the words on the page. The words are simple enough for beginning readers and short enough for impatient readers who want to get to the next moving animal. This book, language irrelevant, will be an instant favorite.
