La hora de acostarse de Francisca (Bedtime for Frances)

Editorial Reviews

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
An enchanting picture book with winsome illustrations and a text in which there is humor and a real sympathy for the maneuvering of the reluctantly retiring young. .
Criticas
PreS-Gr 2-Short, declarative sentences along with rhythm and repetition in the dialog work together with Hoban's clear sense of childhood to make the little badger in this story a beloved character. This is one of the best books about Francisca, portraying not only a child's-eye view of the bedtime ordeal but also the quiet patience of parents as Francisca makes repeated appearances to express her fears about things she sees and hears in her bedroom. Gonz les's translation captures Hoban's rhythms, maintains the shifts in tense, and avoids the temptation to translate the protagonist's quirky poetry literally. Gonzales finds adequate Spanish-language equivalents yet still maintains the rhyme scheme of the original so that readers feel the poetry of Hoban's language. This edition also includes an updated version of the full-color illustrations that Garth Williams completed in 1996. This definitive Spanish-language edition is recommended for libraries and bookstores everywhere.

Children's Literature
Just like many children, Francisca tries to stretch her bedtime as far as she can. She asks for milk before bed; she asks for a piggyback ride from her father; she asks for extra kisses from her parents. Finally, she is all tucked in bed. But no matter how hard she tries, she just isn't tired. So she sings an alphabet song to help her sleep; however, when she gets to the letter T, she thinks of tigers. Then she thinks she sees one in the corner, and she becomes afraid. She informs her parents, but they send her back to bed. Luckily, she realizes the "tiger" is just her bathrobe covering a chair. But then there is the crack in the ceiling through which things might come to get her. Later, the movement of her curtains frightens her. Throughout the book, Francisca learns to confront her fears about nighttime. Adorable illustrations depict Francisca as a cuddly, furry animal. The readable text, simple vocabulary, and realistic nature of the plot translate into a good book for children who want to read for fun or for a teacher who wants to share a cute story with students. 2002 (orig. 1996), HarperCollins Publishers,
