Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A clever rhyme scheme combines English and Spanish (youngsters learn words such as posada/inn and abre/heaven) for holiday fun South of the border in Uno, Dos, Tres, Posada!: Let's Celebrate Christmas by Virginia Kroll, illus. by Loretta Lopez. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
The clear, uncomplicated but colorful illustrations are the perfect match for this charming book about the posada traditions. A party is held on each of the nine nights before Christmas, with friends and neighbors knocking on the door and begging to be let into the inn (posada). The celebration begins when the guests are finally admitted to enjoy delicious foods and fruit punch. Using the counting vehicle, the author introduces listeners/readers to a variety of Spanish words while describing the preparations for the party. "I say UNO you say ONE. Our Christmas posada will be a lot of fun." Each number gives more information about what is happening and continues on to "I say diez and you say ten. Hit that star pinata again and again." We see the children as they set out the food, mix the fruit punch, decorate with poinsettias, and light paper lanterns (faroles de papel) to illuminate the path for the visitors. The illustrations follow the story line in giving the visual reinforcement for the simple statements, as well as being "full circle" in and of themselves. Each illustration starts with the individual and culminates with a scene of the entire village showing the guests leaving the "inn." The author's note gives excellent background information about the origins of the celebration and is followed by a counting page recapping the: 1/uno is for the star pinata (clearly one item), two/dos is for two friends, 3/tres is for the Holy Family, etc.—an excellent visual opportunity for the reader to go back to find each item in the preceding pictures. This will be a pleasure to read aloud and make plans for a posada of one's own.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A brief, rhyming text tells the story of a Latino girl in a Southwestern setting as her family and friends celebrate with a traditional posada, a procession that re-enacts the search of Mary and Joseph for a room at an inn. Spanish words and their English translations are woven seamlessly into the narrative. Spanish usage may vary in some parts of the United States; in California and New Mexico, for example, the little paper lanterns are called farolitos. Kroll refers to them as faroles. The cartoonlike illustrations are exuberant and colorful but not very attractive. This title may be most useful in libraries where there is a need to explain Latino holiday customs to non-Latino children or to start a conversation about Christmas observances among youngsters of any ethnicity.-Virginia Walter, University of California, Los Angeles Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The Hispanic tradition of the posada (a party and procession) is the structure for this introduction to counting in Spanish and learning a few basic Spanish words about Christmas traditions. On the title page, two children and their father approach their Southwest-style home at dusk, carrying the pi-ata that appears on later pages. The children prepare decorations and treats for the posada, counting as they go from one to ten. The rhyming text uses the format of, "I say dos and you say two," followed by a sentence that introduces one word or phrase in Spanish, and the basic Spanish words are easy to understand within the context. Simple but appealing illustrations in bright, citrus shades show each group of items (such as four pots of flowers or ten pieces of candy) along with a group of cheerful children enjoying the traditions. An author's note explains them, defining the Spanish words within the explanations, but there is no guide to pronunciation. (Picture book. 4-8)
