    The text is large and bold and Spanish is presented first, followed by an English translation. “Ven, osito. Come, little bear.” Colors play an important part in the story, each color word (azul/blue, roja/red, verde/green, amarillo/yellow, negra/black, blanco/white ) is colored in the corresponding color. Short and easy sentences are used, usually one per page. They are situated at the bottom of the page, or around the movement in the illustrations, dancing in a wave when the children sing.

Short and easy sentences are used, usually one per page. They are situated at the bottom of the page, or around the movement in the illustrations, dancing in a wave when the children sing. The illustrations of the book are enticing, bold and colorful, done in pastels, watercolors and pencils. The images cover the entire page, easily portraying the action of each corresponding sentence. The pictures are simple and rounded, almost as if the characters are cuddly toys you could pick from the pages. You can only tell which bedroom belongs to which child from what they say they are bringing. Neither room is stereotypically gendered to a boy or a girl by the colors or toys. A mother-like figure also watches the adventure from the background of the images, finally checking in on the children after they have fallen asleep, providing a safe mental checkpoint that a parent provides for young children. It is also fun to find one of the pictures hanging on the wall of the home is the cover art for another of the author’s stories Fiesta! Also enjoyable is the kitten that follows the children throughout the story.

    As an adult English speaker just starting to learn Spanish, I enjoyed this book. It wasn't quite as delightful as the author's book, Perros Perros. But, that might just be because I liked dogs better than the subject of this book which was getting ready for nap in a tent in the backyard. Also, I know my Spanish colors so I didn't learn as much from this book as I did from Perros, Perros. As an adult English speaker just starting to learn Spanish, I enjoyed this book.

    English and spainish board book looking to teach color. I think you would do better with one of the Emberely spainish english books though. A little wordy. Maybe better for someone who speaks the language. Ages 3+

    Spanish/English text. Very simple text-- few words, repetitive. Not so great for read aloud but good for children to read independently.
