Overview


If..., the children's bestseller from the Getty Museum, is now available in Spanish. Los Angeles artist Sarah Perry has created twenty magical watercolors that are an open invitation to the imaginations of children. Beautifully produced in full color, these fantastic images conjure up a world of limitless possibilities where anything can happen: leaves turn into green fish... cats fly about on wings... and butterflies become a little girl's coat of many colors.
When first published in English, If... quickly found a warm reception among parents and teachers who appreciated this book as an excellent springboard to creative expression and writing. Now native Spanish speakers--as well as non-native readers who want to improve their Spanish skills--can use Y Si... to experience the fanciful world in this book and then dream up their own creative scenarios.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An extraordinary book that launches the imagination of all those who pass through the pages."--The Bloomsbury Review

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Open this book to embark on a wild exploration of "What if?" In this ingenious look at our world, Perry treats readers to a celebration of images and words that dance from the page straight into the imagination. Incredible artwork encourages youngsters to envision a world of endless possibilities. Imagine if cats could fly, caterpillars were toothpaste, toes were teeth, music could be held, and butterflies were clothes! The double-page format is very effective with text on the left and richly textured, subtly shaded pastel illustrations on the right. The Spanish translation conveys the essence of the English original. Curriculum connections abound for art, math, science, and language arts. Shared individually or with a class, Y si will unleash a wealth of creative energy.-Zahra M. Baird, Scarsdale Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
