Children's Literature - Kathleen Monks
Join along as a young boy and his pet dragon explore the many activities of springtime. At first lamenting the falling rain that prevents him from playing outside, he and his dragon soon realize that spring showers also bring flowers, St. Patrick's Day, rainbows, games (like marbles and hopscotch), puddles to splash in, and Easter baskets full of candy! This bilingual book includes clearly distinguished color coded Spanish and English text, lively illustrations, and a reading reinforcement section at the end to strengthen skills. However, while the story is pleasing, it is also a bit uneventful. The choice not to provide main characters with names tends to impede the reader's connection to the story. Objects are frequently referred to as "that" instead of being identified, but fortunately the inclusion of clear images aids in comprehension. While it is possible this referral to objects has been done in an attempt to encourage discussion with the reader and child throughout the book, it can become repetitive if the book is read independently. Overall, if read together and supplemented with dialogue, this book will be an enjoyable experience for both adult and child. Reviewer: Kathleen Monks
