Editorial Reviews

Janice Del Negro
Margaret unwillingly goes to the park with her mother, and Margarita (also unwillingly) goes to the park with hers. The two little girls meet, and although their mothers are dismayed that neither speaks the other's language (Margaret speaks English, and Margarita speaks Spanish), the two girls communicate with each other very well, trading words and information in both English and Spanish. Reiser's watercolor-and-ink illustrations show the pleasant interaction between the girls as they get to know each other and, in the end, understand the Spanish and English words for "friend". This is a well-conceived, well-executed bilingual picture book with a narrative that does more than serve as a vehicle for a language lesson. A valuable addition to school and public libraries.

    Super introduction to learning a new language.

    Everyone smiles in the same language. As two young girls make friends in the park, their mothers sit apart. They don't speak the same language. But, the girls start with a smile, an "hola" and "hello" and before you know it they are learning each others language and having so much fun they can't wait to come back the next day.

    The illustrations provide fodder for great discussion about what makes a good friend and language learner. I used this book every year in the first week of teaching second grande Spanish. I always found some new discussion point every year and the kids loved the book!
