Editorial Reviews

Criticas
PreS-Gr 2-Masurel and Kolar use sassy animals and vibrant illustrations to teach youngsters facing a dilemma that only another can solve that sharing is fun. The simple text is enlivened by name-calling and threats from the two antagonists, " Perro torpe!" ("Clumsy dog!") and " Gato molesto!" ("Irritating cat!"), and by the sheer comic vitality of Kolar's drawings. Both Spanish and English texts are direct and easy to read, making this a perfect choice for story time and for impressing the youngest listeners with the value of cooperation. Recommended for all bookstores and libraries-Coop Renner, Fairmeadows Elementary, Duncanville, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
