Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A vibrant Spanish-English paper-over-board book, Pinata! by Rebecca Emberley gives a brief history of the pinata's role as a party game, followed by all the goodies with which to stuff one: "We're putting in candies in beautiful wrappers/ Ponemos dulces en envolturas bonitas." Each photographic spread features carefully arranged trinkets and other details against a bright red background. Emberley provides a quick guessing game using the aforementioned articles and gives steps for creating pi atas at the end of the book. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Everything you or the children in your life have ever wanted to know about piñatas comes to light in this delightful book. The introduction gives adults and advanced student readers a brief history of the piñata, including its role in Chinese, European, Aztecan, and Mayan societies. The majority of the book contains ideas about what to include in a piñata. From candy to little paper umbrellas to ribbons and whistles, the possibilities are practically endless. Short, simple lines of bilingual text are accompanied by colorful mixed media collage illustrations set on a bright red background. One-page tests readers' memory by asking them to recollect the names of all items mentioned, in both English and Spanish! Answers are provided at the end of the book. Finally, the fun book includes instructions for making your own piñata. This book would make an excellent project in a multicultural unit or a fun treat for an end of the year party. 2004, Little Brown and Company, Ages 5 to 9.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Beginning with an informational paragraph on the history of the pinata, this introduction to a Hispanic tradition is presented in simple text and mixed-media collage. Following a spread showing a brightly colored pinata, the bulk of the book shows the various items being placed inside. Candy and gum, rubber balls, barrettes, ribbons, and rings-all these and much more will fall out once the shell is broken. And with a mighty "crack," that's just what happens. Two spreads at the end ask children to identify the objects and give illustrated instructions on making a balloon pinata. The English text is printed in yellow and the Spanish in black immediately under it. Both show up admirably on the bright red backgrounds, though the text is basically just labels for the art. The illustrations truly carry the story, and once the rhythm of the text is established, even the youngest listeners can "read" it. Similar to Emberley's My Numbers/Mis numeros or My Shapes/Mis formas (both Little, Brown, 2000), this title is adequate introductory fare. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Emberley's mixed-media look at the pinata features a vibrant red background on which she has displayed the objects, mostly formed of cut paper, which form her illustrations. The story itself-written in both English and Spanish-primarily focuses on the objects contained within the pi-ata-bubble gum, rubber balls, hair ribbons, paper umbrellas-all of which Emberley lays out across the pages, either in cut-paper versions or with the objects themselves. The story's brief; opening and closing sentences explain that the pi-ata is used for parties and that it's broken to allow the gifts inside to spill out. In addition she has provided a historical comment on the origins of the pi-ata, an appendix of directions for making one's own, and a "naming" page that encourages the young reader or listener to identify the various toys in both languages. Attractive, jaunty, and perfectly pitched both for preschoolers and the youngest students and for their parents and teachers. (Picture book/crafts. 3-6)
