Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Traci Avalos
This bilingual picture book illustrates the popular Spanish song "De Colores" ("Bright with Colors"). It is a well known song that is sung all over the Spanish-speaking world, and should even sound familiar from Mexican food restaurants. The song celebrates the color, joy, life, love, and peace that are often associated with springtime. The song also has some fun animal noises that young children will enjoy. Each line of the song is repeated on opposing pages in both Spanish and English. True to its title, the colorful illustrations in the book add to the joy of the song. The book also includes a short history of the song, as well as sheet music with the words in both Spanish and English. This would be a wonderful tool for teachers who teach music, Spanish, or English as a Second Language, and the familiar song will help young Spanish speaking students feel comfortable. Reviewer: Traci Avalos

Gr 1-3- This popular folk song, which is also the anthem of the United Farm Workers of America, celebrates the arrival of spring and the connectedness of humankind. Diaz's joyful pictures bring the words to life. Rendered in acrylic, colored pencil, and pencil, the vibrant, fanciful artwork features flying and floating people as well as giant-sized roosters, chickens, and birds. The stylized humans, with various skin tones and multicolored eyes, show unity and love through linking arms and large colorful hearts that adorn their clothing. Presented in Spanish and English, each line is illustrated on an expansive spread. Piano music and historical information about the song are included. Because only two verses are illustrated, the book seems short, but it's a visual delight that's sure to be frequently requested.-Barbara Katz, Parish Episcopal School, Dallas, TX
