This story is about a children who live with their grandmother and how she tucks them into bed at night. The story is in both English and Spanish which is wonderful for children who may come from bilingual families. The grandmother's love for her grandchildren is seen clearly throughout the book which can be relateable for children that may live with another family member. The language is simple in the book so it is great for a beginning reader. Overall, it is a great story for children to read.

The book could be used for lower elementary grades. The words that are used are very simple. It can be used to start a discussion about what the students are told before they go to bed every night. The illustrations show the meaning of what the author is trying to convey in the story. ( )

This bedtime story uses soothing repetition and beautiful watercolors to set the mood for bedtime. Abuelita, or grandmother, is tucking her three grandchildren into bed as she reminds them of all the little creatures in the world that are sleeping, too. ( )

The book is about a grandmother quieting her grandchildren before bed. Each line of English text is followed directly by a Spanish translation. As a result, children will probably pick up on a few Spanish words. Also, the book uses repetition so it becomes quite predictable. It is better suited to read as a bedtime story than at school. ( )

A simple but sweet bilingual (English/Spanish) picture book about a grandmother tucking her grandchildren into bed at night, this picture book is great for bilingual families, or for use in ESL or Spanish language classes. The watercolor illustrations are full of colorful, happy people and animals, and this book is suitable for children ages 3-6. Can be used with older children as a language tool. ( )
