Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
English and Spanish translations of familiar words appear side-by-side in four bilingual board books by Rebecca Emberley-My Animals/Mis Animales; My Clothes/Mi Ropa; My Food/Mi Comida; and My Toys/Mis Juguetes-all illustrated with colorful fabric collage against a stark white background. Each object or concept gets its own page, but clever pairings (e.g., "car/el auto" featuring a red car and "truck/el camion" depicting a blue and yellow truck) make the most of each spread.
Children's Literature
Point-and-name books for young children have come a long way since cloth books illustrated "ball" and "cat." Emberley lifts point-and-name books to fine art. Aimed at toddlers just beginning to identify everyday objects in their world, these sturdy board books are a treat for grown-ups, too. Within bright covers, striking cut-paper illustrations are showcased against white backgrounds, the way a single-framed painting is highlighted against a bare wall. Cut-paper collage looks deceptively simple and pictures of clothing could be dull. But Emberley's circus-colored outfits are delightfully imaginative, like the alpine-flowered boots and that red coat with tartan collar and cuffs. The English text is displayed in easy-to-read lower case type; just beneath in boldface is the Spanish translation. These books are a wonderful alternative for children in bilingual households. Among the jumble of inappropriate board books published every year, Rebecca Emberley's books stand out as examples of excellence. 2002, Little Brown, Ages 1 to 3.

I bought the MY ANIMALS and MY CLOTHES books as I plan on raising my child bilingual. The Spanish spelling in both books is inaccurate. There are accents (tilde) placed in words that do not need them, or in the incorrect letters and even a typo. This is pretty embarrassing considering each picture book has a total of 100 words tops.
