    Highly Recommended

    I especially liked that the verses/stories were written in both English and Spanish. Wonderful book for bilingual children.

    Pictures better than rhymes.

    English translation is mediocre at best. The rhymes just don't work in English! One cannot translate a culture, it is what it is. Thus Non-Hispanic readers get the wrong message. My point: 'Pretty Little Girl' suggests it's okay to beat children. While it's widely acceptable in Latin America, it is NOT in the U.S.A. 'Little Tortillas'--what do you mean 'the burned ones for Mama'??? rings the wrong tone. 'The Moon'--teaching our children to 'throw[ing] the waste [I]nto the pond'? What were the authors thinking??? You should've left the rhymes alone, you didn't do them any justice!
