PreS-Gr 1-As in the original English version published by Candlewick Press in 1996, this gracious Spanish rendition sensitively captures the first day of a newborn's life. The realistic yet touching pencil and pastel illustrations and the affectionate first-person text sensitively convey the excitement and drama of the miracle of birth that will reassure young Spanish readers. Some adults may be bothered by a few of the explicit illustrations and language, but the book's tenderness, affection, and honesty in presenting this topic will make this appealing large-format publication a wonderful selection for children and their parents.
