Toddler-PreS–A little boy shares his daily routine with his stay-at-home dad and working mom. His dad helps him with the usual rituals by sharing traditional rhymes while giving them an unconventional twist, blending English and Spanish words. Both texts provide the same blending of the traditional rhymes. Bilingual readers will appreciate the ease with which code switching occurs. The author provides a shift in traditional norms of what families can look like while still offering readers comfort in seeing a familiar structure in the day. The soft palette of the illustrations is perfect for the intended audience.
VERDICT This relatable story is a recommended purchase.
