My son adored these books, fun and imaginative. Fun for including Spanish. ( )

Cute book from my childhood. Happy to have stumbled across it again. ( )

Am I the only person who loathes this book? It makes me cringe. The Spanglish is borderline offensive. Skippyjon is cute, but why do all the chihuahuas have to constantly talk about frijoles and banditos? Ugh, just awful. Maybe I'm hypersensitive due to my proximity to the Mexico border but it just seems really, really ill advised. Please note, I did ask 2 actual Spanish speaking coworkers if they found it offensive and they did not, so it's probably just me. ( )
