Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Erika Clark
“Puedes decir a qué animales pertenecen estas rayas?” Underground in the deep blue ocean are stripes on a floating graceful jellyfish. Amongst the weeds and grass, one will spot strips on a slithering and camouflaged snake. Slowly creeping up a tree, another can find a cream and orange striped snail or discover ivory stripes on the orange and cream body of a mother tiger wrapped up with her cub hidden away in a lair. Better yet, there are stripes “prowling the prairie and perched on a peak.” The author introduces a fun way to explore various patterns within nature. The text includes rhyme and great word play that would spark the interest of young readers. Finally, the pretentious selection of vocabulary helps readers establish a stronger and advance vocabulary in both English and Spanish. Reviewer: Erika Clark; Ages 2 to 6.
