Animal Talk

School Library Journal

Looking for a fun and attractive picture book for bilingual storytime? Oaxacan wood sculptures in this work will captivate young readers with colorful images and simple vocabulary in English and Spanish. For example, “What do horses say? NEIGH NEIGH / ¿Qué dice los caballos? JIII JIII.” Children will enjoy making 15 various animal sounds in both languages. Roosters, kitties, fish, goats, cows, and owls are among the featured animals. A pronunciation guide on the last page will prove to be helpful. The folk art provides vibrant colors seen in Mexico. Pair with Lois Ehlert’s Rrralph or Jules Feiffer’s Bark, George for a fantastic time. Verdict: This interactive picture book is sure to be a young crowd-pleaser and storytime favorite.
