I really enjoy this book and read it every year to my class room. When we have time for spanish class I like to pull out this book. The book is in English but teaches spanish words. It has a rhythm and a chant so that the students are able to follow along. It is written well and has captivated the students. The illustrations are really fun and this is a book that will be useful for a long time. If you are teaching spanish this is a fun book to have around, I highly recommend it!
