Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The title is a shortened version of the phrase "de sol a sol," which means from sun-up to sundown. The poems from a variety of poets including Carlson are assembled to reflect life during the course of a day. It begins with a poem to Mama who smells of milk, honey, bread and mint like a crisp clean morning. As the day passes a cat crosses our paths. The delightful poem "Gato" celebrates a gray, soft cat who even does a somersault. The day comes to an end as we gaze at a starlit sky. The simple, colorful illustrations have plenty of kid appeal. A pleasant collection and recommended for those seeking bilingual (Spanish/English) materials.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-5Read in order, these 14 poems by Carlson and a variety of other poets describe a Hispanic family's activities during one day, depicting such scenes as mama making tortillas, grandpa playing the guitar, and the family cat somersaulting through the air. Each selection appears in both English and Spanish, although a few of the English versions include some Spanish words. The short pieces adequately express familial love and a child's -eye view of the world, but generally lack concrete imagery and consequently do not have the emotional immediacy of finer poetic depictions. The real beauty of this collection is in the simple, bright pictures. Executed in deep, primary-colored acrylics, Lisker'spaintings burst off the pages, enveloping readers in a world of blue dogs, purple cats, and red stars. A gorgeously illustrated book with average-quality poems.Denise E. Agosto, formerly at Midland County Public Library, TX
