Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Traci Avalos
This bilingual story tells the story of special day where there are many dogs running around the town. A young child attempts to follow them and observe their antics throughout the day. Children will enjoy the bright illustrations as they try to find all of the different types of dogs from the text. It has great illustrations, very readable text, and a cute story. There is also a lot of repetition, which will help young readers to join in the reading. However, the best feature of the book is how the Spanish and English run together to create a nice poetic rhythm. In fact, the words flow together so nicely that children may not even realize they are reading in two different languages! This would be a good book to use in the classroom to teach the difference in the placement of adjectives between the two languages. The book is fully bilingual in English and Spanish.
Kirkus Reviews
Featuring lots of short words, thematic repetition and paired antonyms, Guy's latest is great for short read-alouds with preschoolers as well as first reading experiences for kindergartners and first graders. Youngsters will enjoy matching the descriptive words (wide/narrow, ancho/estrecho, etc.) to the appropriate dogs and will flip pages hurriedly to join the young protagonist in finding the answer to the repeated hook, "¿Ad-nde van? Where are they going?" Because the text is fully bilingual, with both Spanish and English texts side by side, speakers of either or both languages will be able to point to and recognize the basic words. Glick's illustrations use strong black outlines and slightly muted colors to create zesty, busy scenes of dogs playing on the slides at school, being groomed and even joining a bird to look down from a roof to the street below. Short, breezy and full of activity. (Picture book. 2-6)
