ALA Booklist
Lil' Libros, created by two Latinas who saw a need for bilingual concept Spanish-language books, led off with picture-book biographies on Frida Kahlo and Emiliano Zapata, both great volumes for any preschool or kindergarten library. This book presents English and Spanish words on the left and a bright, cheery image on the right, effectively reinforcing concepts (though no pronunciation key is supplied). Reyes' often orange-hued illustrations fill the sturdy board-book pages with vibrant colors, and there's a trace of a story regarding Celia Cruz's rise to fame, if you're paying attention: one spread shows Cuba, the next Celia, a later one New York, and finally a gold record. The synopsis on the book's back cover serves as a guide to explaining all of this. Another fine offering from this promising publisher.
