Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Despite a few abstract images, this is a useful bilingual title in Spanish and English. The comforting, repetitive text, with English in a white type and the matching Spanish in black, both laid against the sky blue backgrounds, consists of a rosy-cheeked baby greeting the world. Seen only in profile, the baby bids good morning to the sun, his toys and the world outside. In the final scene, readers see the baby greeting a baby in the mirror's reflection. The retro, Art Deco–like images in muted colors are lovely on some pages and too abstract for the audience on others. While the birds, a teddy bear and the baby are iconic, the sunflowerlike sun, a ball with a prominent nose and a trio of fairy-tale characters emerging from a shelf of books are likely to confuse the very young. Following the same format, the companion book, Good Night / Buenas Noches, has similar strengths and weaknesses in darker bedtime hues. These dusky colors make sense for nighttime fare, but the choice of muted blues and yellows for Good Morning / Buenos Días is a strange one. Nevertheless, talkative and interactive bilingual parents should be able to make both board books work. (Board book. 6 mos.-2)
