Gr K-4—What's in the pot that the farm maiden stirs? Well, into that cazuela goes lime, rice, sugar, milk, eggs, and butter, all brought by different animals. Each is introduced in English, but subsequent appearances use their Spanish names. The list of ingredients and participants grows with each page, offering listeners a chance to pick up the vocabulary through repetition, while enjoying the delightful illustrations by Rafael Lopez. The book (Charlesbridge, 2011) receives stellar treatment here. Narrator Adriana Sananes provides an authentic Spanish accent for the Spanish words, and clear English for the rest of the text. This is a delightful bilingual romp, and teachers will appreciate the chance to compare and contrast the story with the English "This is the House That Jack Built." There's even a recipe for Arroz Con Leche (rice pudding) at the end of the book, as well as a glossary of the Spanish words. This is both a visual and an auditory treat that is sure to stir up a lot of enthusiasm from any audience.—Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary, Federal Way, Washington.

    Clever and fun

    I love this book, as does my 3 1/2 yr old daughter. The idea is so clever and actually works like a memory game. The words are lyrical and educational, and the illustrations are lively and captivating. This is an unusual book - it's fun for the reader and the listener! Hard to find a picture book that meets that criteria! Buy it.
