We go on an adventure with Mamá and Bebé to the supermarket and learn some Spanish while we're there. The Mother has a lot on her groceries list, but bebé seems to have only one thing on his mind: sweets. I really like the way Elya uses simple words and plays with rhyme. I can imagine how she might have used her three children and her experiences at the grocery store as an inspiration for this book. I honestly am not a fan of the illustrations. Yes, they follow the story but it feels almost like there's a lack of connection with the book. I've really enjoyed how other illustrators on Elya's books include the Spanish words into the illustrations and the flavor of Hispanic tales. I wonder if he has ever been exposed to Latino culture? This seems to be the only one of all his books where another culture is represented. ( )

bilingual Spanish book about a baby who goes shopping with his mother. Although he didn't sit still and grabbed a bunch of stuff, he was still rewarded. Do not put pressure on children to be "good", because messing up will traumatize them really badly. Let kids be kids, with reason. A baby can't be expected to sit like a doll when a grocery store is stimulating. Ages birth to 5

This book has some Spanish words mixed into the story and translation in the end. The baby goes grocery shopping with his mom and keeps grabbing everything he see's until the mom gets cookies for him to stay occupied.

Mother takes her very young baby to the grocery store. As the mother shops, the child explores the food and items around him - she tells him what everything is, and what is going on speaking English, with some Spanish words mixed in.
