Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Simple phrases and vocabulary words form a kind of loose, staccato verse in this story of two siblings exploring the outside world, which follows this team's Siesta and ¡Fiesta! "Vamos. Let's go," whispers a girl to her younger brother. "Afuera. Outside./ Buscando. Searching./ Aquí, allá. Here, there./ Por todas partes. Everywhere." In gauzy full-bleed scenes, Moreno pictures the children loading up a red wagon with their discoveries ("¡Mira! Look!/ Campanas. Bells"), after which friends arrive for an impromptu concert. Kids can share in the siblings' joy of discovery--the book is an ideal primer for those learning either English or Spanish. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
ALA Booklist
“The natural blend of the two languages throughout the story is an effective way for kids to beintroduced to the richness of diversity.”
Children's Literature - Traci Avalos
What would you do on a bright sunny day? One little boy and girl decide to use an ordinary day to see what they can find as they search outside. As they wander around outside their home, they find sticks, bells, lids, and even a bicycle horn and bring them all together. But what on earth will they be able to do with all of these things? A little imagination will show how they are connected! With the help of a few friends, the children are able to put on a musical show for their family. This delightful picture book emphasizes teamwork, imagination, creativity, family, and the importance of making others happy. Children will love the bright, colorful illustrations and the repetition of simple words and phrases. This picture book is fully bilingual in English and Spanish, and is a great introduction to some common words in both languages. Reviewer: Traci Avalos
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—A boy and a girl hunt for objects around their yard. After finding lids, bells, sticks, and a horn, they gather with friends to form a musical parade to delight their family. Guy has written yet another beautiful and heartfelt book that celebrates the magic and joys of coming together through shared creativity. Moreno's stunning illustrations aptly express the thrill of finding beauty in the moment and of having pure, unadulterated fun as only children can. Pastels, watercolors, and pencils are used to create appealing landscapes of grassy hills, pink flowers, welcoming trees, tidy houses, and a rainbow-filled sky. Smiling round faced children of various ethnicities gather to play together, while loving family members look on. This intriguing story of "looking and finding" will captivate young readers, and the bilingual text will facilitate learning basic Spanish and English. ¡Bravo!—Cristi Jenkins, Fort Vancouver Library District, WA
Kirkus Reviews
Guy and Moreno (Siesta, 2005, etc.) continue this family's familiar adventures with an imaginative outdoor romp. As the siblings investigate the world outside their doorstep, they gather various materials from their backyard. Sticks found by the tree, an umbrella propped against the porch and the lonely horn on a bicycle all are collected in the children's little red wagon. The seemingly disconnected items reveal a unified package when the youngsters create their own boisterous band. Brevity breeds consistency in this bilingual text, which has a catchy refrain that leads the children from one find to the next: "Por allá. Over there. / Aquí, allá. Here, there. / Por todas partes. / Everywhere." The narrative builds as Spanish and English interchangeably move the day along. "¿Entonces? What next? / ¡Mira! Look! / Amigos. Friends." Soft colors suggest the passing of time; the rising and setting sun provide a hazy glow, and the warm hues permeate each clean double-page spread. The loving relatives maintain a supportive role in this successful celebration of innovative play. (Picture book. 2-5)
