There are many burros! How will Pedro an Papa find one that is just right?
PreS-Gr 1 This winning story is enhanced by Estrada's colorful, inviting illustrations. Pedro and Papa travel to market to select a new burro, but they wonder how they will find the right one. After looking at many, they meet a playful one wearing a hat, and he proves to be just right for work and friendship. Featuring repetition and humor, the simple story is set in large type with ample white space. The eye-catching illustrations add to the fun, with detailed Latin American-flavored backgrounds, varying perspectives, and an adorable animal that will capture readers' hearts.-Barbara Katz, Parish Episcopal School, Dallas, TX
