Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This bilingual book board uses an affectionate rhyming story about a teddy bear and a toddler to broadcast an ageless message of unconditional love. Caroline Jayne Church's sweet, gentle illustrations enhance the theme. A read out loud followed by a hug.

Children's Literature - Jennifer Greene
From their fingers to their toes, it is easy to love our little ones, whether they are being silly or mad, talking or silent. This new edition is a bilingual presentation of the tender story, with a Spanish translation running alongside the original English-language text. As the book is read out loud, each first-person statement becomes a declaration of how much the reader loves the listening child. At the same time, each picture in the book contains a boy and his stuffed bear, cleverly mirroring how as the narrator loves the child, the child loves the bear. Only one picture breaks this conceit: while the narrator loves the boy's "cries," an unhappy bear runs away with great speed. The musical rhymes and repeats making this a perfect selection for young children to read along. In general, the pictures make this book; Church's illustrations are cute, colorful, and emotive while creating a sense of variety with changing angles, sizes, and framing. However, the bilingual aspect of this new edition is lackluster. Save the last two pages, the rhyme pairs in Spanish do not read as nicely as their English counterparts. Likewise, the statements are broken over multiple pages, and given the differing constructions of phrases in Spanish and English, the translations do not line up well for children to compare languages and learn. For example, when the text states in English (over two pages), "I love your inside / and outside," the translation reads more "inside / and outside, I love you." Across two or more pages, this grammatical difference can become noticeable and even confusing. In addition, the cardboard pages are thinner than those of most board books and toddlers can easily bend them. The book is still worth reading, but the bilingual aspect is definitely secondary and reads like the afterthought it is. Reviewer: Jennifer Greene
