The rhythm is good and helps the reader to pronounce the Spanish words correctly. The illustrations are cheerful and colorful. ( )

A Wichita Public Library 2015 Big Read companion title. Fun! ( )

diverse picture book (colors / toddler/preschool ages 2-6)
* Book prominently features diverse characters: yes, the main characters belong to a dark-skinned family of Latinx descent. The text is mostly in English, but introduces colors and illustrated terms in Spanish (which are also defined in a glossary at the back).
* Book would work for a toddler/preschool storytime. The text is nice and short, and the identification of the colors invites audience participation. Teachers/readers might struggle a bit with the Spanish pronunciation of the words, and there is no pronunciation guide, but thankfully there are no double-r words for me to fail to roll.
* Book works well with the "colors" theme. ( )

This book is a great tool to use in a spanish/english classroom, or when introducing spanish to students. The Illustrations are beautiful, each page focuses on a new color, and introduces spanish vocabulary with the main focus being on spanish colors. At the end there is a glossary of all of the terms used so you can clarify anything that may have been unclear. I think that is a great feature.

This book is an alphabet concept book appropriate for both preschool and primary grades. According to Scholastic Book Wizard, this story is a Pre-K-K and 1-2 level of comprehension and readability.
In this story, they go through the colors such as green, red, and yellow, and relate these colors to culturally-based items in the Hispanic community, as a color concept book would relate to American items. “Green is for chile pepper. Red is for the salsa on top of our rice.”
It was a quick read, and I honestly wish it was a bit longer with more colors of the rainbow. I would use this during Hispanic Heritage Month or if students in my classroom are more comfortable with speaking Spanish than English. Overall, a 4/5. ( )
