Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
The steady rhyme and bright illustrations make this a perfect choice for a read-aloud. For example, one spread reads, "We wave our flags, green, white, and red. Parades are under way. As floats pass by, flares fill the sky. It's Independence Day!" This particular page is filled with red, white, and green flags and people with similarly bright-colored clothes. The rhythm pulls readers into the story of Mexico while the pictures are certain to catch a reader's attention. Each page has similar bold colors (yellow, turquoise, pink, orange, red, green, and purple) and teaches a few facts about different places in Mexico. Also, every spread has a few English words with their accompanying Spanish translations. The end of the book contains short bits of information that give the history of various places and events in Mexico. Even though readers will not have to "Habla despacio, por favor," there is a list of "First Spanish Phrases" so readers can learn things tidbits such as "Please speak slowly."

PreS-Gr 3-In bouncing prose and bright illustrations, Krebs and Corr take readers on a whirlwind tour. The picture book follows a family as they swim in the ocean, traverse canyons, climb pyramids, and celebrate Independence Day. The rhyming text is coupled with Spanish vocabulary that complements the story line. Enchanting folk-art illustrations give a true taste of the beauty, color, and variety of Mexican culture. A map, fact sheet, time line, and list of translated Spanish phrases are included.-Melissa Christy Buron, Epps Island Elementary, Houston, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
