Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dorina Lazo Gilmore
This book invites readers to come to the table. The narrator, her sister, brother, and dog are urged to join Dad, Mom, and Grandma at the dinner table. The bilingual Spanish/English book celebrates the food they eat, including beans, cheese, chiles, tortillas, and green salad. The simple story also notes the rich blessing of eating food together as a family. This is the first book in the "My Family/Mi familia" series. The spare text is perfect for reading aloud to preschoolers, while elementary children will enjoy reading this book on their own. Children of all ages and cultures will be able to relate to this book, which could provoke discussion about food traditions and family life. The bright illustrations by Maribel Suarez bring life and action to the pages. They work seamlessly to help young readers understand the text in both languages. Reviewer: Dorina Lazo Gilmore
Kirkus Reviews
Three young children share the pleasure of sitting down to an inviting family dinner in their cozy suburban house. Tico, their dog, provides a little humor and Dad, Mom and Grandma (Papa, Mama and Abuelita in the Spanish text) round out the family circle. The contemporary Latino family eats tortillas, beans (frijoles), cheese, chile and green salad, and this meal provides the strongest hint to their ethnicity. As the meal progresses, the younger sister Tina exclaims over the abundance of food and shares her feeling of well-being, a sentiment echoed by everyone. The book is bilingual with very easy English and Spanish texts, sometimes placed on alternating pages of the double-paged spreads and sometimes printed together on the same page, a design decision that may annoy some who feel strongly about the structure of bilingual texts. The details of the watercolor pictures are nicely linked to the text, but the ever-smiling family members all share the same simplified facial features. Kids who know either English or Spanish can be introduced to this book and encouraged to try to learn some words or sentences in the unfamiliar language. This is the first in a new bilingual series for young children created by a major proponent of family literacy initiatives. (Picture book. 3-6)
