Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For a slightly younger crowd, Mam Goose: A Latino Nursery Treasury/Un tesoro de rimas infantiles by Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy, illus. by Maribel Su rez, introduces classic Spanish finger games, lap games, Christmas carols and birthday songs, with the English translation right alongside. Sweetly placid watercolors emphasize rounded shapes and smiling babies, as well as undersea and garden settings. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Ada and Campoy have put together a very thorough collection of children's rhymes ranging from lullabies to jump-rope games. The songs are fun to sing and the riddles are even more fun to puzzle through. Suarez's darling watercolor illustrations perfectly complement the youthful exuberance of the rhymes. Though the collection is very comprehensive, it is not complete, as none of the songs have their accompanying music. This makes the sung or chanted portions of the collection somewhat inaccessible to readers who have not come across the tune in the past. This inaccessibility is not a remote possibility as the rhymes hail from all over Latin America and will not necessarily be familiar to all Latino readers. Also, because there are so many places of origin, it would be wonderful to know where each rhyme comes from, but Ada and Campoy do not provide this information either. Despite these flaws, the authors have done a marvelous job with their editor to ensure that the English translations of the rhymes not only make sense, but also rhyme and maintain the character of the Spanish original. This book is a solid and enjoyable addition for any library. 2004, Hyperion Books for Children, Ages 6 mo. to 8.

Kirkus Reviews
Gathering fresh material, Ada and colleagues expand the scope of Pio Peep! Traditional Spanish Nursery Rhymes (2003) to include not only baby songs, but riddles, proverbs, play rhymes, jump-rope rhymes, a circular tale and even a funny ballad about a dead cat brought back to life by the smell of sardines. Except for English-only section introductions, the contents-index included-are bilingual, Spanish first, with the English translations editorially tweaked into rhyme: "Una, dos, y tres / pluma, tintero y papel / para escribir una carta / a mi querido Miguel," becomes "One, two three / paper, ink and pen / all to write a letter / to my sweetheart Ben." Suarez decorates the pages with smiling, round-faced, sweet-looking children and animals bouncing about exuberantly. As there are no source notes and the compilers even tuck in a few insufficiently identified poems of their own, this wins no high marks for scholarship-but young listeners singing or clapping along won't mind. (Bilingual poetry. 3-8)
