Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618111441, Paperback)"A bilingual account of some of the animals and sounds commonly found in the Southwestern desert. Each double-page spread depicts a vast expanse of light blue sky with four lines of text--two in English and two in Spanish--on the verso, and a different creature or scene on the recto. . . . The translations are appropriate and provide an excellent opportunity to compare the sounds in the two languages. . . . The illustrations evoke Native American art in shapes and colors, and the bottoms of the pages are adorned with geometric designs. This book is a good choice for reading aloud; young audiences will enjoy the predictable, repetitive text, and its bilingual format enhances its appeal in a variety of multicultural settings."--School Library Journal
