K-Gr 2–José and Joe are two friends that love to play in the park. They get there by riding their bikes. José and Joe swing and play on the seesaw, they climb and slide, they like watching and playing baseball. After they play, other friends join them, and they clean up the park as well. No matter what they do, they have fun because they’re together. This text is truly a bilingual story that juxtaposes the perspectives of these two friends in English and in Spanish. The cheerful illustrations are eye-catching. A great choice for read-alouds or one-on-one. Emerging readers can use visual cues to independently read.
VERDICT Purchase for all bilingual and Spanish-language shelves, especially where friendship stories and previous entries about José and Joe are popular.
