A blue backpack. Una mochila azul.
A brother and sister, un hermano y una hermana, and their little bear, un osito.
But there are so many things to gather -- and so much to be done
Come join the fun -- in English and Spanish -- and make an ordinary afternoon extraordinary.
In this festive companion to their Fiesta (1996), Guy and Moreno again combine a brief bilingual text with full-page, full-color illustrations brimming with soft-edged details. Here a brother and sister go through the various rooms of the house deciding what they need to gather in order to create the perfect backyard setting for a nap. On most pages, the English and Spanish texts are woven together-" Que necesitamos? What do we need? Mi mochila azul. My blue backpack." The large, bold type is easy to read and prints the words for colors in those colors. Warm and charming, this treat invites young readers to broaden their linguistic horizons.
