Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Brooks
Take young readers on a backyard camping trip that will not soon be forgotten. In English and Spanish, the story teaches a rainbow of color words and some common expressions. The rich and muted tones fill the pages with color and charm as two winsome children prepare to spend the afternoon outside in a tent. Collecting paraphernalia needed for hours of fun, this sister and brother run from room to room getting just the right stuff—backpack and jackets, a flute, a clock, a flashlight, books and a bear, each in a different color. Of course, the last item is the most important: a vibrant and multihued Mexican blanket which serves as the tent—and cleverly provides the readers with an opportunity to review all the colors in two languages. It is mighty comfortable in the shade of that backyard tent and, soon enough, it is time for a little afternoon rest—siesta. Many studies show that children learn second languages best at young ages and this is a terrific way to tempt kids to pick up some new words. Now available for younger children in a board book format. Reviewer: Deborah Zink Brooks
