Toddler-PreS–Children will learn about using the potty, sharing, and making friends in this colorful pair of bilingual board books. In ¡Chones, por favor! Undies, Please!, a boy wants to wear colorful underwear with designs just like his older brother. But to do so, he must first learn to use the potty. He is supported by his brother and father as they practice, and he finally succeeds, receiving his new, bright underwear at last. In ¡Eso es mío!/That’s Mine!, children are arriving at a school and beginning to play together when one of the girls starts to take all of the toys for herself. When she sees that the other children are now playing together and she is alone, she realizes that playing together with friends makes for a much more fun time. The text is composed of short phrases shown in English and Spanish that correspond perfectly with the events taking place in each spread. A diverse cast of children and adults is shown, and the bright colors and dark, often bold text is eye-catching.
VERDICT A great addition to bilingual board book collections.
