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, but Emberley's tomato slice looks real enough to drip down the page. And the crumpled paper bow-tie pasta made me look twice—no, it wasn't a photograph of the real thing. Some of the foods are shown whole, such as the tasseled carrots; others are cut in half, like the apple. 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.

    No disrespect to Rebecca Emberley, but I really didn't like the illustrations. Maybe cut-paper collage just isn't my thing, but I figure little kids have enough to learn without having to figure out that the yellow-orange blob is a pear/ la pera and that the crumpled up bits of paper mixed in with paper strips from the shredder are actually bow tie pasta, spaghetti and angle-hair pasta all lumped together as noodles/los fideos. The tomato and carrots were the most identifiable out of the lot. The first couple of times reading it to my daughter I actually had to move her hand out of the way so that I could read what the food was supposed to be. If the illustrations had been more clear, or were just photographs, I would have bought her whole series.

    I'm buying the whole series

    My daughter received this book when she was about 3 or 4 months old. She's been crazy about it ever since. I think it is because the illustrations are easy on the eyes (some books are so 'busy' - too many things to look at). She just started solid foods, but I'm eager to find out if some of her first words will be food that she remembers from the book. I read in some of the other book's reviews, that some of the spelling and punctuation are incorrect. That may be, I took three years of spanish in school and the words look fine to me. I'm not so concerned that she needs to SPELL Spanish correctly, as I would like her to SPEAK Spanish when she is older. I'll leave it to her high school teacher to correct her spelling 0)
