Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Throughout the world, Spanish-speaking youngsters learn to count backwards with the help of a traditional catchy counting rhyme that stars disappearing puppies. With this bilingual edition, kids can master that art in two tongues, thus doubling the pleasure while reducing the pooch count.

Children's Literature - Mandy Cruz
Nursery rhymes do not generally translate well, but in this case the authors did a good job of making sure the words that they added did not change the feel of the rhyme. It should be noted when someone finds a way to translate a nursery rhyme into another language and do it as well as has been done in this book. The ten puppies slowly dwindle to one as has been done with monkeys, ducks, Indians and even zombies. Though most usually end up with none it is heartwarming in this book that the little girl has one left in the end to love. Ten Little...books, rhymes, songs, or whatever form they subscribe to, are always good for teaching kids some kind of lesson whether it be not jumping on the bed, trusting strangers or getting caught by someone with an infectious disease you can always count on them to teach kids to count from ten to one. If you must have only one of these backward counting books this would be a good choice because it ends on a happy note and it is bilingual, teaching kids two valuable concepts at once. Reviewer: Mandy Cruz
School Library Journal
PreS—In one of the most popular counting rhymes in Spanish folklore, 10 adorable puppies decrease by one with each page turn. Enticements such as snow, pastries, fireworks, a new home, theater, sickness, and fun cause the puppies to move on, until only one remains as a beloved companion for a child. Vibrant colored-pencil and watercolor illustrations are done in deep hues of green, pastels, and earth tones to create realistic images that capture the spontaneous, playful, and affectionate nature of the pups. The text can be sung or spoken in Spanish or English. The English translation skillfully utilizes rhyme to maintain the story's authenticity while accurately reflecting the original poem. The back section contains musical notation of the melody, guitar chord symbols, the bilingual verses in their entirety, and a glossary with information about the 10 dog breeds featured. Large, appealing illustrations will make this a favorite for storytime presentations; an excellent source in helping children to develop prereading skills, and a fun way to introduce them to early math concepts such as addition and subtraction.—Cristi Jenkins, Fort Vancouver Library District, WA

    The Art of Survival

    The Art of Survival

    Chapter 3- Kristen's POV

    I am in my room, leaning back in a chair with my feet on the wooden table in front of me. The room I had claimed is paintded a soft blue, and decorated in a modern style- just like I like it. I hear a faint buzzing and nearly fall out of my chair in shock. I recover quickly and grab my phone, answering the call from a girl named Katonia.
    "Hello?" I ask.
    "Kristen? We found a great place. A farm. We beat the huntlings to it. It's got animals and food and everything. Come right away!" Katonia says excitedly.
    "Okay... okay. We'll pack up and be there soon as possible!" I reply, and hang up.
    I leap to my feet and grab my bright yellow backpack. I start jamming clothes- from dresses to jeans to my baseball jacket- into the bag. When I'm through, I sling it over my shoulder and grab a flashlight, a box of matches, and a Baggie of dog treats.
    "Wolf! C'mon, boy!" I shout. A large black-and-white wolf pounds in, eyes bright and ears pricked. I have a way with animals, so getting Wolf was easy. The powerful creature howls loudly and bounds after me. "Pack up, guys, we're movin' out!" I yell. Wolf and I run to the car and load up. My excitement fizzles out when I hear the moans.
    The moans of the dead.

    Hunter's POV

    I hear Kristen hollering and hop up. I've got nothing to pack, but I take the awesome wrought-iron lampshade from the room I'd been assigned to. Griffin joins me, weilding a drainage pipe like a sword. We head downstairs and meet with Autumn, David, and Gabriel, who are carrying duffel bags and backpacks. We pile into the car out front, and are zipping down the highway before Griffin's even shut the door.
    "Close the damn door!" Kristen commabds in a slightly shaky voice. My brother hurriedly obeys.
    "What's up, Kris?" Gabriel asks from the shotgun seat.
    "We're moving to a farm Katonia found. She said all the animals are there, and she beat the huntlings to it, so no animals are infected." Kristen explains, glancing cautiously at the rearview mirror.
    "Sounds cool." I comment quietly.
    "What'd you say your name was?" Gabriel asks.
    "Hunter." I answer.
    "Cool." After that, we are silent for the rest of the drive. I use the time to try to solve the many unanswered questions swirling around in my head. I only end up with more. But I have one true statement.
    This life is not one for me. Or anyone else, really. But it's the only life I've got, so I'll keep it.
