Editorial Reviews

Criticas
PreS-Fans of Lynn Reiser's earlier bilingual books will not be disappointed with this one. In a format similar to Margaret and Margarita/Margarita y Margaret (Greenwillow, 1993), the book uses two main colors to separate the English from the Spanish text, allowing readers to learn simple words and phrases in either language. The two lost balls, which are the centerpiece of this lively tale, will keep young children turning the pages as the search for the balls' owners unfolds. Primarily illustrated in black and white, Reiser depicts all of the round objects in full color. The end papers, which allow children to play a matching game, offer an entertaining bonus. This story makes a great read-aloud, an enjoyable teaching supplement, and a satisfying bedtime story. Recommended for libraries and bookstores.
