Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Lively. . . . Not just for students of Spanish, this merry exploration provides wholesome fun for anyone who enjoys the beach, or mischievous babies."—School Library Journal
Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
The colors and excitement of a day at the beach are captured by the vivid illustrations and happy expressions of Bebe and Mama in this, the second book about Bebe. It is a busy day at the beach, and Bebe joins right in. He lets his mom apply suntan lotion, and then he rushes to jump into the waves and feel the icy-cold water. After eating a picnic lunch, Bebe plays in the sand. While admiring some sand sculptures, Bebe sees a surf board. He cannot resist; he jumps on it. Oops! The board was made of sand. It breaks, and the sculptor comes running. Mama and Bebe go for ice cream and make tracks in the sand. Finally, the tired little boy falls asleep on his beach towel, and Mama has a chance to relax in her lounge chair. The text is liberally sprinkled with Spanish words, all of which are listed in a glossary that includes notes about proper pronunciation. Most of the words can be guessed by studying the illustrations, and those kids who are not conversant in Spanish will be able to make a game of figuring out the meanings. Reviewer: Carolyn Mott Ford
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2- In this follow-up to Bebé Goes Shopping (Harcourt, 2006), Salerno joyfully blends 1950s advertising-style illustrations in vivid gouache and watercolors with colored inks and pencils. Elya rhymes through a day at the beach with bilingual Bebé and his "muy bonita Mamá ." She cheerfully trails after the active boy as he plays, digs, picnics, chases a ball, and tries out a surfboard sand sculpture. At the end, the sweet toddler gives Mom a respite by napping under an umbrella. A 36-word glossary assists, though context clues keep things rolling. Elya's writing is as lively as her hero: "The rolling white olas are foamy and loud./Bebé waddles after them, right through the crowd./Mamá 's coming, too; she remembered the lotion-/he squeals as his toes hit the icy-cold ocean." Not just for students of Spanish, this merry exploration provides wholesome fun for anyone who enjoys the beach, or mischievous babies. Add Brigitte Luciani's How Will We Get to the Beach? (North-South, 2000, available in Spanish or English) to enjoy a mother and son who have a tough time trying to reach the ocean with all their paraphernalia.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

Kirkus Reviews
This second Bebe-y-Mama outing (Bebe Goes Shopping, 2006) takes the team to the beach for a day filled with sand, sun and some more Spanish-language fun. While a bikini-clad Mama tries to soak up "el sol," her toddler is "ready to roll." Playing in "la arena" with his bucket and "pala," he is soon tasting slimy "alga marina" and breaking apart someone's carefully sand-sculpted surfboard. This bouncing, energetic toddler gets into all sorts of mischief before finally napping on his towel: "Mama gets a break now. "At last, descansare!" / But who had the best time of all? / Sweet bebe!" With her signature Spanish/English rhymes, Elya introduces a gracious plenty of Spanish words interspersed in bold throughout the easily recited text. Salerno's retro-style, full-colored paintings complement and enhance the linguistic clarity. A glossary provides extra support, particularly for pronunciation. (Picture book. 4-6)
