Reviews

"A cross between a concept book and a word book, this is a fun read-aloud to use anytime or in a bilingual storytime program." --School Library Journal

"With repetitive text and child-friendly illustrations, this wonderful read-aloud invites the younger set to experience the tension, relief, and satisfaction of a great plot." --School Library Journal, Top 10 Latinx 2016

"Arena's clever, catchy text might invite some play-acting games, and the lively energy of her
informative words is well matched by Dominguez' friendly, dynamic creatures in an earth-toned palette. This handy introduction to Spanish vocabulary is perfect for animal-lovers of all stripes." --Booklist

"Pura Belpré honoree Dominguez's green, brown, and tan illustrations capture the movement in each spread . . . Marta's adventure is an enjoyable way to introduce animals, observe concepts, and identify comparisons and polarities in English and en Español." --Kirkus Reviews

"Arena and Dominguez nimbly combine an exploration of relativity with an introduction to Spanish vocabulary." --Publisher's Weekly

"An ideal choice for bilingual storytimes." --The Bulletin
