Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
OROZCO, Jose-Luis. Rin, Rin, Rin/Do, Re, Mi. illus. by David Diaz. unpaged. Scholastic/Orchard. 2005. Tr $16.95. ISBN 0-439-64941-2; pap. $3.50. ISBN 0-439-75531-X. LC 2004018149.
PreS–A well-known children's songwriter and a Caldecott medalist teamed up to produce this romping, rhyming picture book. The Spanish text is comprised of the lyrics to an Orozco song that encourages readers/listeners to find, identify, and count items and words in the illustrations. The English text, located below the Spanish, offers only a brief, pithy synopsis of the Spanish without attempting to reproduce the entire meaning. Perhaps this is because the full translations, offered in the final pages, leave much to be desired. What redeems this effort is the powerful, arresting art. Bold, black outlines attempt to rein in the energetic, smoky colors of each vibrant figure. Every page invites readers into a busy, crowded scene full of people, animals, and things–a raucous dinner table, a bustling street scene, a playroom full of toys, etc. Most readers will bypass the text in order to immerse themselves in the illustrations. Musical notation is included.
Publishers Weekly
The bilingual book Rin, Rin, Rin/Do, Re Mi by Jose-Luis Orozco, illus. by David Diaz, offers rhymes in Spanish and an abbreviated English translation below (e.g. "Ja, Je, Ji, Do, Re, Mi/ Ja, ja, ja, ji, ji, ji, ji/ Cuenta todos mis..." / "1, 2, 3,/ Count with me!"). Diaz's two-thirds spread illustrations give hints to each rhyme. For instance, a boy with his mother counts off on his fingers, as three cyclists ride by, four ducks swim in a pond and five roses appear in the foreground. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Orozco takes us through the day of a young Latino boy in this children's song and rhyme. There is a little chant for every occasion—going to school, market, the park, and bed. These chants will be fun to sing and say for emerging readers, as they are composed of simple monosyllabic nonsense words. The book emphasizes the importance and joy of language and reading by showing the boy's eagerness to find words in his surroundings and in his parents' advice to read in order to be happy. This title is written primarily in Spanish, with simplified English text accompanying the illustrations. The full translation of the Spanish song can be found at the back of the book along with its musical notation. Though the book has the worthy goal of promoting Latino literacy and it has paired two well-respected creators of Latino children's books, it is not a particularly thrilling addition to the body of Latino books. The song is entertaining to chant, but not particularly memorable, and Diaz illustrates well, but not with great personal feeling. The book feels more dedicated to its literacy goals than to telling a good story to its audience. 2005, Orchard Books/Scholastic, Ages 3 to 6.
