Toddler-PreS–A delightful book that explores six classic songs in Spanish and English. Included are “Old MacDonald Had a Farm,” “The Alphabet Song,” “Where Is Thumbkin,” “The Wheels on the Bus,” “The Eeensy Weensy Spider,” and “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” Spanish translations are well done, although the lyrics to “Juan Pancho” (“Old MacDonald”) are a bit complicated. With a little practice, patrons will be singing along smoothly. The mixed-media illustrations in subtle tones portray happy children excitedly singing these familiar childhood songs. Children of different races and backgrounds appear on every page.
VERDICT This beautifully done book is sure to be a hit with toddlers and preschoolers.
