My son loved this book. He enjoys trying to pronounce the Spanish that is sprinkled throughout. Aviva on Wild Kratts certainly helps and luckily all of the Spanish we've encountered in books so far are words that I actually know so that I'm (hopefully) teaching him how to pronounce them correctly. This is a cute story, just not memorable. I like that it's laid out in chapters and is more advanced than many of the other books on the Monarch list.
