Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4A rhyming text and bright cartoon illustrations introduce 72 Spanish words in this follow-up volume to Say Hola to Spanish (Lee & Low, 1996). The words seem chosen more for their rhyming qualities than from any logical consideration; e.g., the inclusion of guitars, tubas, oranges, and grapes on the same pagetubas rhymes with uvas. The meaning of most words can be deduced from the pictures, though in some cases, such as juguetes and mueca (toys and doll), the objects referred to are not obvious. A glossary with pronunciation guides helps verify what readers may have to guess otherwise. Katherine Farris's Let's Speak Spanish (Dutton, 1995) as well as Rebecca Emberley's Let's Go/Vamos and My day/Mi dia (Little, Brown, 1993) present a wider vocabulary in a format that is easier to follow, though both are less suited for reading aloud. Hank DeZutter's Who Says a Dog Goes Bow-Wow (Dell, 1997) introduces 16 languages in story form. It is superior in illustrative terms. Despite the drawbacks presented by the eclectic word choices and slightly garish illustrations, Say Hola is an entertaining, albeit additional, purchase.Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
